Our loving Husband, Father, Uncle, Brother and Friend has begun to enter his final stages of life. He has fought long and hard for the last decade and his body is tired and weak.  As we spend our days with him, we want to make sure he knows how loved he is.  How much we will miss his sarcasm, his wit, his undying love for us.  He is the most passionate and caring man many of us have ever known.  Our goal as his family, is to make him as comfortable as possible, to ease the pain he has been living with for so much of his life so that he can find peace in the final phase of his life.  He loves his wife Merri and his daughter, Sheridan more than anything and through his life it has been a burden to his heart that he has been unable to provide for them financially. He has always said how worried he is for when he is no longer here that they will have to deal with so much on their own. As you know, Merri has been the sole provider for her family for many years.  We are making these plans as a family and doing everything we can to be as strong together, as Terry is on his own. 

Our goal is to raise money to offset costs that come with funeral planning. We want this gift for Merri and Sheridan to alleviate the financial burden of funeral planning so they can mourn and celebrate with a little less weight on their shoulders.  

Any amount is greatly appreciated. We thank you all.

To my dear friends and family,

I can’t find the words to express my gratitude. I’m overwhelmed with the donations you have generously given to our family. I’m brought to tears to see how many people have been willing to give to us and support us during this time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Terry would be so relieved to know we are supported by so many and that a huge financial burden has been lifted from my shoulders.

The stories and wishes you have posted to this site are my fuel through these days. Each night I lay in bed reading and re-reading all the things you’ve written. They give me strength in my weakest moments and make me feel so close to Terry. He really was such an amazing man.

I’m blessed to have you all in our life. It has been a joy to see Sheridan learning more stories of her dad before he was sick, and for the constant reminders of how much he loved her.

You will never know the gratitude I feel and the love I have felt over these last difficult days. I love you all.

Merri
