This is a sad comment. Terry was truely one of a kind. He was my locker partner at Homeroom 406 (Mr. Streator) for all three years, I believe. I had the upper half and he had the lower. We used to fight to see who could wheel him to his next class so we could get out of class 5 minutes early. We were soo dedicated. Jim Bakken used to beat me out, though. I grew to love Terry. He had an outstanding spirit and parents who loved him. REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND. Doug
