72 is far to young to die, it’s far to young to have to suffer the pain and anguish you did. Watching from a weakened body as your wife lovingly takes over every aspect of your life that you are no longer able to perform.
You fought hard and you fought well, never losing your smile, your laugh or your dignity, even until the end when it was all taken from you.
You were the best of men & the greatest of men. An older brother that my father will never get over. An amazing husband, father and uncle. You lived your life for everyone else, even down to holding on until your daughter was by your side.
I will miss you more than you can know, you’re an inspiration in dealing with adversity and if I can only be half as strong, loyal and tireless as you, then I shall consider myself a decent person.
I love you Uncle Terry and I hope to see you again, just not yet, not this soon.
All my love Jennifer.
