I graduated from Lamar with Terry and we were good friends at that time but he became my best friend while we were at A&M. He was best man at my wedding. I had plans to fly home to go fishing with Terry the week after he was killed.
He is the best man I’ve ever known. I miss and love him. The world desperately needs Terry Lewis today. One day I’ll see you on the other side brother.
