My daddy,
I love you so much! You are my hero. My best friend. You were always there for me when I needed you. Always hugged me when I was upset or sad. You helped me threw the passing of my mother, my grandfather, and my sister. I never thought in a million years that I would loose my daddy at such a young age.. I remember when I was a little girl, I always helped you on your side jobs. One in particular was the one that Paul was helping you on at bob and Maryanne's. I did all the mudding and you guys did the rest. You kept telling me how proud you were of me because I was doing such a good job. I remember telling you that I deserved to get paid more then Paul because I was better then him at mudding. that made you laugh for a long time. I don't think I will ever get over this , but I know you were proud of me. And Daddy, I will ALWAYS be YOUR LITTLE GIRL..

Goodbye to an old and dear friend whom I've known more than 40 years. He was a true friend who never said "no" to me, no matter how big the request.

So very sorry to hear of Terry's passing. I know Terry as a fellow Toledoian. I still remember the Toledo party he had here in Colorado. The rule to an invite was you had to be from Toledo! He truly was a great guy. It was an honor to call you friend Terry. See you again someday my friend. Hugs to you Taylor.
