Disturbing to see his last post was about his condolence for the mother of KPD !

My god! I'm totally shocked. This can't be real.

Terry was such a good person. From the ESPN days to these boards he never changed. He is one of the very few people I ever chatted w/online, particularly when we both lost our mothers within a short period. He was great support. Always a straight shooter with a great sense of humor. Loved the B's and knew his stuff. His obit said it all. He WILL be sorely missed.


Deepest condolences to his family and freinds. The world just lost a great person.

RIP Backin.

Condolences to his family.

On a side note......I know it is cliche as hell....but we all (myself included at times)have to remember to not take the loved ones in our lives for granted. Life can often get hectic...and I'm not saying that every moment can be a Hallmark Card moment of beauty...but try to remember how much you appreciate and love your spouse, child, parents, brother, sister...etc....cause, unfortunately, some of them will be gone before you know it. I lost both parents at relatively young ages (mom was 50 and dad was mid 60's) and speak from experience.

Somebody seriously needs to make a universal avatar that we can use for the upcoming season....Honestly I'm still in shock....My grandfather died in a similar matter (59) and it's something you just don't get over.

I was thinking the same thing, or at least change our status to something in his memory.

We should put hotweaselsoup on it. And, we can all put it on for the first week of the season. In memory of Terry!

3:30 Monday,

To all of you here on HF's Bruins Board.

I called the funeral home's number and talked to someone there and she said that I could send her the pages and she would make sure his wife got the messages from all of us. I will wait till tomorrow night to print off the post and if anymore come in I will forward them to her as well. The lady at the funeral home said that it would be very nice for his wife to know her husband was so well loved.

The black jersey may be appropriate for that kind of thing.

Thanks for posting this, Randy. Suffice to say I was shocked and saddened when I read it. And as previously mentioned, 50 years old is just way too young. Whatever words I choose somehow always seem inadequate in situations like these, but my deepest condolences go out to his family and friends. When we go out for a drink after the Philly game on February 7th, we'll have to raise a toast in his honor.
