So sorry this is late in coming, I am saddened to hear the news of Terry's passing. My own mother-in-law passed away the 17th and my wife and I have been busy at the hospital and now funeral home and cemetery. Terry and his family will be in our prayers.
God bless our troops!
Sorry to hear about Terry's passing. He will definitely be missed.

Just got off phone with dr_cmg who kindly called to let me know the sad news. Well - despite not being here much these days I still feel I have lost a friend, as I guess many do.
My heartfelt condolences to Rich and the family ....... this must leave a huge gaping hole for sure. I am however glad to have had the privilege shall we say - of having known Terry, even if just thru this medium. I know one thing for sure, he was dedicated here to doing the best he could as a moderator and put in a lot of time to add a more than valuable help to the forums.
Rest in Peace Terry - gone but certainly never forgotten.

I got a PM from Paula (Mrs. Crunch) today. Rich and his family have returned home. Please remember Paula especially at this time.

I just saw (and read) this thread, and am deeply saddened at the news.
In my “education” here, the Captain played a significant role, I know I am a better man and am more able to provide SD and protection to MY family because of the wise (and sometimes very direct) advise I received here directly and indirectly from the Captain.
My prayers will still be for Paula, Rich and the whole Crouch family to find God’s peace now and continuously until reunited.
I personally will be looking for the Captain at “the feast of the Lamb” when I am called home.
I am setting aside 21 rounds of .45ACP to “salute” the Captain the next time I go to the range.
God bless Terry.
And may God bless Paula, Rich, Gina and Jaden.
It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

Oh, I just heard the news. Been fighting malware for 3 days.
Paula, Rich, and family, thank you for taking the time to keep us informed during this difficult time. I'm so sorry to hear of the Captain's passing.
As a testament to the Captain's involvement in this forum, as of 3 days ago, he was still the top thread starter for the month, even though he hadn't been online for several days. He was very involved, and he will be missed.
Rich, I'm glad to hear you are going to be carrying the Captain's weapon as you protect your family. What an honor.
Bob and Terry's place--I like the sound of it.
I owe the Captain a debt of gratitude for his work on this forum where I have learned so much. Paula and Rich, my family is safer tonight, and their future safety is impacted, because of the Captain's efforts and his work on this forum. Thank you for sharing him with us.
Our condolences to your entire family. He will be missed.

The pendulum of the mind alternates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.
