Kim & Cathy: We were in Tucson when we heard of your father's passing, or I would have attended the services. We haven't stayed in touch over the past 2 decades, but I have many fond memories of all the years we spent as close friends. I am glad to hear he had 5 grandchildren and I am sure they were the apples of his eye. I am very sorry for your loss!

Dear Ann, Our deepest sympathy to you and the O'Brien family. Terry and I go back a long way when we first met some 68 years ago when we were 8 years old. That was when our friendship began as boys. Terry was the fastest runner, the best in sports, and the toughest kid on the block. I was fortunate to stay his friend over the years and was able to visit him a few times the last few years. We laughed & talked about the old days. I look forward to seeing Terry again in Heaven. May God bless the O'Brien family. All our love & prayers, Ray and Barbara Dunlea
