Debra Baumann on Jan 12, 2019

I just wanted to give my sincerest condolences to Terry. I saw your father’s obituary online. My name is Debra Baumann (Debi) and we graduated in 1973 from Memorial High School. So very sorry to read about your father’s passing. Take care.

Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your dad, Clifford was my cousin, his dad & my dad were brothers. I remember him coming to some of our family reunions up north. Very respected
