It's 3:00 pm on monday afternoon. It is so hard see Aunt Deb without her true best friend,She is a very nice lady. We all miss you down here on this earth. I miss seeing you smile and telling me how nice of a girl I am. I wish that I spent more time around you. You where a great person to your wife and children. Every time Aunt Deb talk about you I know how hard it is for her. Last year for the first time in along time I helped Aunt Deb put up her Christmas stuff. It felt good to see her try so hard to put things out, but in her face it looked very sad and hard for her. I have to say I am very proud to see her do things without you. Every time I walk into her house it feel different without you. I miss you and love you. There's only one thing I want you to do for me, help guide me in a good path.

FOR WHEN YOU LOSE A HUSBAND YOU LOSE A PART OF YOU.

I was on Cross Country and Track with Terry for 3 years at UE. He was a very funny guy. I remember one time when Terry, Pete Pribulick and I ran up to the top of African Hill. It was the farthest that I have run in my life. Nice memory. Close

I was thinking about my hunting buddy. / One Of Terry's Favorite Song By Linkin Park~ IN THE END~ (A Good Friend )
The other day I was thinking about Terry, I don't know why maybe because of bow season, maybe because of deer season, For whatever reason, I remembered this song. I think we were driving to a hunting spot and it came on and he said how much he liked this tune, this ones for your ter. I'm thinking about you.
"In the End"
It starts with love, one thing I don't know why It doesn't even matter how hard you try keep that in mind I designed this rhyme To explain in due time All I know Time is a valuable thing Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings Watch it count down to the end of the day The clock ticks life away It's so unreal Didn't look out below Watch the time go right out the window Trying to hold on, but didn't even know Wasted it all just to watch you go I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn't even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn't even matter
One thing, I don't know why It doesn't even matter how hard you try, keep that in mind I designed this rhyme, to remind myself of a time when I tried so hard In spite of the way you were mocking me Acting like I was part of your property Remembering all the times you fought with me I'm surprised it got so (far) Things aren't the way they were before You wouldn't even recognize me anymore Not that you knew me back then But it all comes back to me (in the end) You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time I
I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn't even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn't even matter
I've put my trust in you Pushed as far as I can go And for all this There's only one thing you should know I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn't even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn't even matter I tried so hard And got so far But in the end It doesn't even matter I had to fall To lose it all But in the end It doesn't even matter

for the schmegs-Rainbow Bridge / For All Your 4. Legged Friends Whom Miss Playing With You Down Here (his dog )
Schmeagle Coughlin May 8th 2003- April 29th 2006
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.... Author unknown...
I did not know Terry very well at all. The few times I was around him, however, I felt very comfortable in his home. He seemed like a warm, gentle person and welcomed me, my husband and daughter without hesitation. I feel so bad for Deb as well as Terry's kids because of all the people in Terry's life, they were most important and will experience this loss the hardest. I hope they can get the help they need to recover and start healing from such a tragedy. Healing will come, but it will just take time.
I miss you so so much. A little over a year has gone by now. We all miss and love you terribly. I especially miss your hugs and kisses and the way you said "Hello" every day when you came home from work. We all will remember you in a very special way. You accomplished so much in your life and im sure everyone is proud of you for them. Especially me. But its not that your gone...because now I have a gardian angel of my own. And I talk to you everynight in my prayers. And I thank you for everything you have done for me. Like teaching me how to shoot a 22 gage gun, how to find the right mushroom in the woods, how to take care of a BUNNY RABBIT, science fair projects, wine making, canning pickles, making tomoato sauce, making your pizza, making your famous macaroni and cheese, and MANY MANY more things you taught me well. I love you so much dad!! Cant wait to see you again. =)

I miss you so much. I miss holding your hand; kiss you, your smell and the sound of your voice. I miss telling you about my day and your words of encouragement. I miss your dry sense of humor, your smile, and your laughter. I know in my mind you are in a better place free from pain, worries, and heart ache. I just have a hard time making my heart believe that.

I just have something to say about Suicide / A True Friend Whom Is Family
I have something to say about suicide, how it affects everyone whom was involved in Terry's life in one way or another it has affected: Mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, cousins, children, and friends. I have learned a lot about suicide in this passed year by just living with it through my friend. Did you know every 18 minutes someone commits suicide? Did you know the chances of someone of blood relative chances of suicide have just increased to 400%? Did you know that the most common suicide victims are white males between the ages of 42 and 55 and come from broken families either immediate or extended? I have never been so close to it, nor have I ever been so hurt by it. It has torn apart families and friends. It is the people left behind that suffer the most. It's a long journey back one of small baby steps of Isolation, loneness and questions of why? It is feelings of guilt and judgments! It is truly the silent killer not only of my girlfriend husband, but also of many who come in contact with it. People whom question there beliefs should really be pointing their fingers at themselves.

I remember Terry as a kind and gentle soul. I never heard a bad word spoken about him, only praise for his work. Although I did not know Terry well, I can not help but feel the loss of his goodness, his caring spirit. I pray that Terry is at peace and in the company of Our Lord. May the love he had for his family and friends live on in each of us. Close

I met Terry through Dale Carnegie class at Binghamton University this year. This is a 12 week class where we all practice public speaking and you can't help but get to know everyone in the class very well. I know Terry we especially liked, he spoke very well and his stories were captivating. Through his stories we learned of his work, his children and his wife, the later of whom we met at the last class.
Terry also had a love of the outdoors that I identified with. I've had the pleasure to see his great room with all his hunting trophies displayed. It is an impressive collection.
His accomplishments include his children, his work and his marriage to Deb. Like myself, Terry was an engineer and has weathered a divorce and come back to build a life to be proud of. There are few people I have met in my life that I genuinely admired, but Terry was one of them.
He will be missed.
Best wishes to his family. Close

one sweet day... / Elizabeth Walsh (Niece in law )
I remember the exact day that I found out that my aunt Deb had found the love of her life and had married him. I have never seen my aunt so happy in her entire life. He was everything she needed and she would for the rest of her life love him. At first I was worried that my aunt Deb, who had been to every game, every play, every recital, every graduation, would leave Chicago and leave us. But as I got to know my uncle he was the most amazing, interesting man. He was loving, caring, fun, and the first to lend a helping hand. Now is the time I wish I could of lend a hand to him. Tell him to hold on. Tell him it'll all be okay. I was unable to ever do that. What I was able to do was to get to know this amazing man who made my aunt so happy and became part of our family. His two beautiful children were like young siblings to me and I will always remember the times I spent there. The last week I spent with my uncle was one of the most fun times in my life. My brother and I spent the nights with my aunt and Terry because they were the ones who stayed up late with us. I remember playing cards on the deck with them enjoying each other's company and I have never laughed so hard in my life. Terry brought out the fun in everyone. I'll never forget the last time I said goodbye to my uncle Terry. With a smile on our faces and "See you soon" on our lips, we headed to the door not knowing "soon" would feel like eternity. Every night I pray to him and hope he watches over everyone that loved him so much. I know hes in heaving shining down on us and protecting us..and I will see him soon...one sweet day...I Love You Uncle Terry...xo
