Terry, have not seen you in over 60+ years, but will never, ever forget you. Definitely a man's man!!!
Proud to see you had been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, always competitive.
Did not know of Teddy's passing, appears a lot of us are getting close to the end of the road; but what a ride!
May the Good LORD above bless you and keep you, my friend!
