Barbara, sorry to hear of Terry's passing , I meet Terry in Jan. 2002 and contracted to have him build a JASON 28.
We brought to Florida in 2005 and it is still plying the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
I thank you for your friendship and Terry's advice. R.I.P. Terry

Dear Jason Family
We are so sorry for your loss. Only met your dad/grandfather once or twice but admired his skills and enjoyed talking with him. You have lots of memories to share.

I want to express my condolences to your family and friends over the loss of your love one. In times like this a comforting word is welcomed. May you receive strength and comfort from the God who promise to “swallow up death forever” and give us a hope of a “resurrection”. - Isaiah 25:8; Acts 24:15. JW.org
