Blake's brother, Terry passed away on Tuesday August 5th after fighting a battle with lung and bone cancer. He was 63 years old. He fought a great battle, the cancer was mostly gone for awhile, and he had some good days where he could work, but the Lord saw fit to bring him home when the cancer returned to his bones, so he didn't have to suffer all over again with it.
Cindy took this picture of Terry in May 2013. It speaks volumes. Terry was a big tough guy on the outside, and soft on the inside.
He was a great example to all of us. He was my Sunday School teacher when I was in High School, and probably the best Sunday School teacher I ever had. He had a very funny personality, and loved to tell stories. Blake was able to spend time with him quite often this winter when he was too sick to go out. He also drove him around several times when he was in too much pain to drive.
We will miss you, Terry. We will try to continue to follow your good example and work hard.
