  4. Bruce and Marjorie Harris and family :

    Terry, my cousin, and his beautiful family will be forever in the fond stories our family cherishes. We share in grief at his passing, yet the love of the family connection keeps us bonded together despite the distance and time apart. I am thankful that I was part of his wedding so many years ago, as an usher, because it made me feel a part of his family. I have wished to be closer to him and Karen ever since, but our paths diverged, and now his has been accomplished. It is a sad day for all of us. There is less light here on Earth, but I will look for a new star in the heavens,, where he watches us and waits. Farwell cousin, I miss you!
