    Wherever you may chance to be; wherever you may roam: far away in foreign lands or just at Home, Sweet Home; It always gives you pleasure, it makes your heart strings hum just to hear the words of cheer – “I see you’ve traveled some.” When you get the brother’s greeting and he takes you by the hand, it thrills you with a feeling you cannot understand. You feel that bond of brotherhood; that tie that’s sure to come when you hear him say in a friendly way, “I see you’ve traveled some.” And if you are a stranger in a strange land, all alone If fate has left you stranded, dead broke and far from home, if a stranger stops and takes your hand, it thrills you – makes you numb, when he says with a grip of fellowship, “I see you’ve traveled some.” And when your final summons comes to take a last long trip. Adorned with Lambskin Apron white and gems of fellowship. The Tiler at the Golden Gate with square and rule and plumb will size up your deeds and say “Walk in, I see you’ve traveled some

    I am saddened to learn of Terry’s passing, but I know he’s in the arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Terry and I worked together at West Lumberton Elementary School in the 1990s. He was such a pleasure to know and I could always depend on him to assist me with any needs that arose. He had a quiet, pleasing manner about him and a smile that could win over anyone! When my daughter was getting married, Terry and his friend assisted in making her wedding reception a success. I saw Terry a few years ago in Ruby Tuesday, following church. We had such a nice reunion! I will continue to keep his family in my thoughts and prayers in the days to come. Thank you for sharing Terry with me and all the staff at West Lumberton Elementary School. He enriched our lives beyond measure!
    With deepest sympathy,
