Terry and I went to Sherman Elementary, Evergreen Jr, and then Skyline.  "Linger" as we called him was one of the best kept secrets in our graduating class.  I had not spoken with "Linger" since high school.  Last year Jeanne Jerrard and I were talking about people that we grew up with.  She mentioned Terry so I called him year.  We had a wonder chat reliving experiences that we had, or at least how we remembered having them.  He was so weak on the phone.  So glad he is released from the health challenges that limited him.  Love you "Linger."
