I still think of you today. You were one best man I ever knew. Such a kind and loving heart. I always looked forward to seeing you come in the ER and just chatting for awhile. You shared your wife with me when I was at one of the lowest points in my life. I was pregnant and my husband had left me and you graciously shared Terry with me so I would have a labor coach. I remember talking you the day before you died and how we made plans to have lunch, so you could finally meet my son. We laughed because all you had seen were pictures of him. We talked about how quickly time passes. I was so looking forward to seeing you the following week. When I got the call that night I couldn't believe it. I spent a lot of time with Terry over the next several days and to this day I speak of you and Terry to my son. Even though he never met you he knows what a great guy you were and the sacrifice you made in the line of duty. You will never be forgotten. Until we meet again.

Er nurse and friend
