Terry will always remain in my heart. I have so many wonderful memories of good times with Terry & Nancy. The camping trips, the holiday dinners, 4th of July in Melba, and all the times we met to just hang out through the years. Terry had the best smile in the whole world & will be missed by all our Amos family. May he Rest In Peace.
