Condolences For Terrence "Terry" McClanahan
Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing our beloved Terry. We were music buddies and band mates for many years and had many good times together. He always inspired me and I consider my time with him in Western Pleasure some of our best work together. What I loved about Terry was his openness to new ideas and his optimism. I never heard him utter an unkind to or about anyone. He was a true friend and I will miss him in this life and look forward to seeing him in the next life.
