Met Terry McNett several times. I managed Potbelly's at the time and he came in often, sometimes with family. One evening Terry invited me to sit with he and his wife and one of the kids, so I joined them for a few minutes- maybe 20. What a treat. Mr. and Mrs. were very kind to me- I have family that in LE so I understand the value placed on peace and privacy.
Mr. McNett was gone just a few weeks later- what a blow.
I'm grateful men like McNett are out there, taking the risk, drawing the thin blue line. It is 28 years later and I still think of him often, saying a prayer for Mrs. and McNett's kids.
