    Terry was always such a good sport when we invaded their home every summer for our annual girl weekends.We have nothing but wonderful and hilarious memories of Terry.I always felt loved when he was near and his love for his wife and family was such a joy to be around! My heart hurts for us all.

    In my spare time, I worked with Terry while he was president of the Standish bank. Even though he was the president and I was just an employee I never felt as if I work for Terry. He always made you feel that you worked with him, as equals, to develop strategy, complete projects or solve problems. He cared deeply about people, a trait that helped him as president to serve the bank’s customers and employees. To me, he was a mentor and a friend. Of all the people I have met in my life, he was one of my most favorite. I will always remember the smile on his lips and the twinkle in his eye.

    Carol – sorry for your loss. Our prayers for you and your family are for peace and comfort.
