Cecille Gerber wrote a sympathy message

“Terry and I were classmates in Tiskilwa from first grade through high school graduation. He was a kind and generous guy. About 15-20 years ago when a big old pine snapped off and fell across my front yard. He'd retired by then, but I thought I'd take a chance and call him. Trees were down all over town and it would be a big wait to get anyone to remove it. He came over right away and cut it all up for me. When I tried to pay him, he said, "Nahhh. I wouldn't take money from a friend."”
