Dear Alisa, Lucas, Alaina and Justin;

Please accept my heart felt if somewhat belated condolences for your loss of a great husband, father and friend.  I was Terry's roommate our third class (sophomore) year and I can still hear his voice as he bounded into our room right before the noon meal formation with another laughing pronouncement of, "This place sucks!"  Honestly, you could set your watch to it. But I was always glad to see him because he unfailingly had a great story to tell about the most recent atrocities of military decorum perpetrated upon him by one of the Academy's 'lifers' he encountered that morning.  I especially recall how smart he was, how adventurous and how kind he was to everyone.  He was an old soul, even back then, I think because he saw and understood so much.  He was a delight to be around because of his sense of adventure and his desire to appreciate and capture the beauty around him.  I remember how he used to set his camera and tripod up right before taps, facing the window overlooking the Thames, so that he could use time lapse photography to capture the sun coming up at 6:10a, its red rays lighting up the river, the Academy sailboats casting vibrant, cross-shaped shadows on the shimmering water.  And I remember how he'd bound into the room Sunday nights, fresh from the weekend's adventure in Middle Earth - his name for the Connecticut woods. For some reason I vividly remember how he wore these weird green woolen pants one time, apparently a Frodo hand-me-down, and gave me a blow by blow of what a mistake it was to wear them in the dank Connecticut country side. I guess I feel sad that such a delightful human being is no longer walking the planet -

Terry truly lived.

I can only begin to imagine how you must miss him. I hope this account of my time with him brings you comfort.
