Athletic Network Footnote: Terry was a friend and next-door neighbor in the ole Vet Village during our days at USL. Many times we played bouree for matches because we had no funds. We used to laugh at how many cracks there were in the floors of our apartments and questioned who had the most. Terry emailed me recently and we made plans to have lunch at Prejean’s Restaurant. We had a good visit when the weightlifters had their reunion and had been communicating by email since that time. I will miss my friend and pray for his soul. Peace, Ed Dugas
