We've Lost a Great Friend

Terry was a dear friend of me and my husband.  We enjoyed many dinners together with Terry and his longtime companion Janet, and they accompanied us on a trip to enjoy the beauty of Southern Utah.  Terry was a devout cat lover, and he took care of our 8 cats several times when we traveled.  He really loved to play with the cats and all their toys and held nightly catnip parties.  I think the cats were sorry to see us return.  Terry was a kind soul with a huge heart for both people and animals, and we have all lost a great friend.
