Terry and family,
You know you have my deepest sympathy. I feel so guilty because I hadn't seen you for awhile, and every day I felt
something wasn't good and I said to myself that I had to call, and then I didn't get it done. On Wednesday morning I just had a gut feeling that things were not good and I was going to call, and then I got the call. I feel so terrible!!! May God be with you and help you through this.
