Terry was a wonderful friend of Money Creek Buffalo Ranch and Buffalo Gal.( Mike, Valerie, Nicole, Derek, Naomi, Imogene ). We always joked that Terry was the only reason we were still in business. He has been such a regular part of our lives since Cody’s Mercantile days and is sorely missed especially his ‘jokes’, medical insight and ultra clean truck. Godspeed Friend.
Our deepest sympathy to the family.
My sympathy to you Joan and your family. I'm so sorry for your loss.
Dave and all of the Joyce and Evelyn children lived across the alley from the Virock family when we were young and played "Tin Can Alley" among other fun things. Mike, Greg and/or David J. Please see that Big Dave gets the message/
