Wow ... What to say? First, the Bonds Family and I thank all of you who loved Terry and helped him through so much. We also thank each and every one of you who have offered your friendship, your help, a kind word or even just a quiet prayer that no one else knew about. Thank you! I am rarely without words, but sit in awe and wonder today at the love Terry was able/willing to give to others. About

My life has truly been touched by Terry--a wonderful friend and an inspiration in so many ways. He always knew how to make me laugh, but he could sure make me cry! Heaven has gained another angel and I am glad he can rest at peace in the Great Meeting in the sky. He will surely be missed by many!

Terry, I will never be able to thank you enough for all of your love and for teaching me how to love by showing me through your actions. I pray that I will always remember how I felt today at your service; though heartbroken and sad to lose someone who I loved dearly, joyful and happy at the thought of us meeting again one day, because I know where you are! What a beautiful and wonderful moment that must have

I'll never forget the time you visited us whilst on leave from the Marine Corps. I was probably 5 at the time. You danced and sang with Mike and me in the living room to Buryl Ives "Eating Goober Peas." And as I became an adult, you've always been so supportive of me and what I was doing and telling me that you love me. I'll miss you so much!

Terry and I were neighbors living on Ramsey in the Rosedale neighborood of Austin, growing up. I was two years older than Terry, but friends never the less.
Baseball, football at Ramsey Park until it got so dark we could not see the ball, was almost an everyday thing for us.
No, I have not seen Terry in years, but the memory of growing up in the 50's and early 60's in Austin with him is vivid in my memory.
May our Lord

I remember the ever ready smile, infectious laugh, the feel of being enveloped in the bear hug every time I saw him, and the genuine caring that accompanied the question, "How are you?" Unlike so many who carelessly toss out that question, Terry truly wanted to know the answer and would thoughtfully listen and then lift my spirit, just with the twinkle in his eye.
I saw him deal with great joys and unimaginable sorrows and remain in awe of
