Daddy loved everybody and always found a way to make you laugh. He lived a good Christian life and told everyone his testimony no matter where he was. Terry always told everyone to be ready to go to heaven one day. If he could speak to us now, Terry would say to be saved by the grace of God and be ready to meet him one day. He enjoyed topping trees for twenty-one years and meeting new people. Daddy’s enjoyment in life was being with his kids and grandkids, but the most enjoyment of life for daddy was his best friend and wife, “Momma.” One day they will reunite and live together in eternity. We love you daddy and will miss you every day until our last breath. Funeral services for Terry Lee Rollin will be conducted Monday, at 2 pm from the Fairview Missionary Baptist Church.
