To the Jensen family,

Very sad to hear of your loss. Terry was a very sweet guy who worked long and hard for my dad and mom's family business (Bob's). My heart goes out to your family and their loss.

Travis, Chuck, Cheryl (mom), Uncle Doug, and Uncle Gregg - Our family has suffered another tragedy. Uncle Tata will sure be missed: his wit, his laughter, and his friendship. His final days were filled with love, laughter, and family which made him happy. Keep these memories close to your heart, I know I will.
