  1. Alex, Chris, Carolyn and kids – It is always with the greatest fondness and good will that I remember the days at Vought with you. Those were some of the best days of my life – certainly in work-related ways and also in what became great personal friendship. Please know I grieve with you all at this time. I have lost my parents decades ago but the memory is still strong. May you find supreme strength from our Father in Heaven as you go through this time. You are in my prayers. I will not be able to attend the memorial service due to business demands but know I will be with you in spirit. Please feel free to drop me a line at my email. I’d love to do lunch some time… Terry – tholsinger@tyndale.edu
