  8. To Terry’s Family,

    I was so sorry to hear about Terry. He stopped by the Mayor’s Office almost everyday to say hello, ask how my day was going or just sat down to share a story or two with me. Every spring he brought me in tulips or daffodils from his garden which made my day and brightened the office. I will miss his warm, gentle spirit. He will be missed by all of us at City Hall.

    With Prayers and Sympathy,
    Cathy Trowbridge
