    RIP, Terry! You will be missed by many but never forgotten! I will always remember when Linda & were @ ICC, we were typical broke & hungry college kids...what did we do? We went to the Ribhouse! Terry & Bobby always provided! What a good guy! Always had a smile, didn't matter where you were or what was going on, if you saw Terry, he always spoke! Knew so many people just cause of how kind of a person he was to all!
