Thank you for your inspiration. I believe you are my judgment when I climb into my cockpit. You are not forgotten. Posted by: Your Son, Scott Banning

I remember the day that we heard that you were gone. My husband, Pat, escorted your body from Travis AFB to your home in Illinois. Two years later Pat became MIA and remains so to this day but I have a feeling that you have seen him and are sharing a friendship once again. God bless you, Terry, and give Pat a bear hug for me.
