Terry Beck, my bother in law, was a man I admired for the great job he did in helping my sister, Carol raise a large family, keeping them fed, clothed,and following God in their lives. These children have all grown into excellent ADULTS, WHO ARE MODEL CITIZENS OF WHAT ALL OUR COUNTRY NEEDS TO BE. Thanks Terry for what you gave us.

I was sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. Terry & Carol were the 1st neighbors to greet us when we moved to their old neighborhood in Naperville. I have fond memories of hanging on their driveway, Christmas gatherings & patio hotdog parties. I really enjoyed their stories of the “good old days” of raising their kids in Longwood. RIP
