With our deepest sympathy to Becky, Mark and family in the loss of Uncle Terry. Loved by all he will be so truly missed. I loved being around him, and especially loved when he came and borrowed my dulcimer to learn how to play. I was tickled he wanted to learn this instrument even though it was string backwards he still mastered it I am sure. May god wrap his arms around all of you for peace and understanding. Mark & Karen Gazdik
