The last time

This will be the last time I give an update for Terry.

His funeral was held at the Adelaide Oval on the 31st May at 5pm. The oval looked spectacular and he would have been very proud to see the way the SACA paid tribute to him. He would also have been surprised at how many people attended to say farewell - he always doubted whether many people would come to his funeral.

Individual tributes by his daughter Trudianne, best friend Ian Berry, Surrogate sons Shane Warne and Cullen Bailey along with farewells from his sister (read by his niece) and myself said it all. He was loved and will be missed.

A private cremation took place the following day.

To all who attended, sent condolences, cards and flowers our family would like to say thank you.
For all who donated to Cando4kids in Terry's name - thank you.
The support we have received from family, friends, the medical profession and total strangers has been amazing - thank you

Terry's legacy to spin bowling will live on in all the young spinners and coaches he had the privilege to work with. I am sure you will make him proud.

Thank you again
Ann, Damian, Trudianne and Ashlea
