  31. My memorable time with Terry was the three-day opportunity we shared with Brice on the 2009 Tiger Cruise. We were aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, returning from deployment in the Middle East, and were able to participate on the final leg from Jacksonville, Florida to Ike’s home-port in Norfolk, VA. We had a great time participating in all the activities, and were awe-struck by the size of the ship and the number of steps we climbed while on board! Somehow, Terry managed to get the top bunk out of the deal, which we kidded him about relentlessly. I was blessed by being able to share this time with him. It was truly a “Once in a lifetime experience”! Ed Walls

  32. So glad I got to meet your family. Hang on to those precious memories and may God wrap his loving arms around you during this difficult time.
