  11. There are no words I can say or express that will convey how much I loved and will miss my Uncle Terry…
    I just really wish I would have been able to spend more time with over the years and had more time to spend with him in the years to come..
    Unfortunately, when someone is taken from us so early in their wonderful life, this can never be.
