Terry was my son's (Steven Hoffman) best friend. He was older than him and would give him great advice and guidance. To this day he cherish's the time they spent together. Steven always called him "T". After he passed Steven got a tattoo of an angel flying over a gravestone with his unit number on it, there is also a fireman's cross above the angel. I will forever be grateful that he was such a wonderful role model to him. We will never forget him.
