To the family, I send my sincere condolences on the loss of Terry. I worked with Terry on and off at Revco and CVS among other locations as a pharmacist. We at some point in our past 30 years were partners at several store locations. Terry was one-of-a-kind! He had a great sense of humor and a beautiful smile. He was a good pharmacist and a great asset to the Savannah community. We also were Scuba dive Buddies. Taking several trips to Florida to different dive locations for several years. I consider Terry a friend of mine and I will surely miss him but I will never lose the memories we made together. I will keep the family in my thoughts and prayers through this trying time .God bless you all.

Susan, Alex and Addison, it's hard to believe that Terry is not with us. He was such a good friend and leader, and he enriched my life. I was priveledged to work with such an amazing group of young men and women, and Terry was such a great part of the group. It became our YMCA Leaders Club Family and we still stay in touch 45 years later. The diving trips, the weeks at Blue Ridge every summer are all such fond memories that we will carry forever. Judy and I have great memories of his visits to live with us over the summer in Colorado. Terry was a special person, loved by all he knew, and will be missed. I pray for God's blessings on you and for His strength and His peace as you go through this season of loss.
