Love me forever or not at all

End of our tether, backs to the wall

Give me your hand, don’t you ever ask why

Promise me nothing, live till we die

Love Me Forever, Motörhead 1991

      I always enjoyed your company. I remember you coming into the store shortly after Gregory was born. Your next stop was to buy a newspaper as a keepsake for your son. It was such a wonderful idea that I purchased copies of the Victoria Times Colonist after both our granddaughters were born.

      My condolences to Terry ‘s children and extended family

  3. My only memories of Terry are good memories. We were very close friends at one time in our early lives, and as a friend he was without fault. Honest, intelligent, witty and profound.
    When I got my first motorcycle, Terry’s place off Richmond St. was my first stop, and that ride we took up to Lucan and around the town is something I will always remember, and some of the other great times we had as well.
    He was a really good man. My deepest condolences go out to his family, and to all the people who loved him.

  10. I only met Terry a few times at Maria and Gregs. He was one of those people, that after you left the party, you regretted not having a chance to have had a real conversation with because you got the sense they had something special to share. My deep condolences to all of his children, family and friends. Cheryl Leigh
