Terry made his entry into this world less than 24 hours before I did at the same hospital in Cumberland. Our moms are friends, so I heard how Terry as an infant with a full head of hair had hospital staff adoringly fawning over him. In grade school, Terry often attracted attention from the nuns and teachers in unsympathetic ways because he was energetic, charismatic, and ornery to a fault. I smile recalling his grade school antics. He wasn't perfect, but who among humanity is? However, Terry had a good heart. I hope he finds peace. I wish comfort for his family.
