    Mr. Bonefont Sr, (Roberto)
    Thank you so much for the You-Tube memorial for Terry and the kind words you expressed in your message to our family. Its a loss that came out of no where, he is missed so much. The memorial that you put together was incredible. The end brought me to tears to think how loved Terry was and the impact he had in the Moo Duk Kwan. When Grand Master Hyun Chul Hwang called, we spoke for over 45 minutes and he was in tears. He said “Terry, was a true Moo Duk Kwan artist” and how much he had contributed to the organization and in Tang Soo Do. He was my younger brother, my best friend and my teacher, again thank you sooo much! Ron Updike Dan Bon 23117
