Amy and Joey,, my heart has been aching since last Sunday. Anyone who knew Terry would have at least one, special, happy memory of him that brings a smile to their face. Mine is from 1975 when Terry started asking me to blow dry his hair. I must have told him I wanted to be a hairstylist so he figured I'd better start practicing, or most likely he just wanted to be pampered :). Either way, the on-going job of blow drying his hair was the beginning of my 24 year career as a hairstylist. He was my big brother and in a way, my very first client and those few moments we spent together every week will stay in my heart forever. Sending you both love and great big hugs. Aunt Cheryl & Chris
