Getting grabbed up by Terry and hugged when I shook his hand, well, he was like my Dad for our time together. He was instrumental in me and my Dad's healing of our relationship. I will be chairing a meeting today and carrying on the legacy during the funeral. His faith teaches always.

I love and miss my Uncle Terry. He was a force of nature, a good man, and a very special servant of our Lord. I have only happy childhood memories of his laughter and love.

I met Terry Jan 25 2004. That was the day God blessed me a return to AA . In only Terry Bond fashion, he approached me tossing his Big Book on the table and leaned down asking " Don't ya want one more little nip"? Since then, Terry always demonstrated that sober life was good!! We shared the same sponsor and I would tease him that I was the #1 in the sponsee pecking order, knowing that was not so.

Dear Sweet Terry,
As I sit here today thinking about you and the special life you lived...I miss you. You are a part of my story and will always be remembered with love, admiration, respect and smiles and maybe even a tear.
Thank you for reaching out to so many people and for touching each life with love, hugs and a kiss. You are loved.

How in the world do we put into words what Terry meant to us. Wild, crazy,hilarious, wonderful, loving, deeply spiritual, caring at depth, forgiving beyond measure, always trying to understand, rather than being understood, always comforting others, rather than wanting to be comforted, loving, and hoping that he was loved. He forgave, rather than waiting to be forgiven.
There are people who come into our lives that we really love. Then there are those who come into our lives and sit
