Terrance and I were classmates at both St John's Jesuit High School and Ohio University. We were also both piano students of Mrs Mary Belle Shealy. It was with a great deal of sorrow that I learned of his passing. May his family, fraternity brothers and friends find comfort in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Rest in heaven my dear friend. Jai I. Norment II, Whiteville, Tennessee
