Another update

This past weekend, we found out that Terry's cousin Tim Duncan was killed in a freak accident. He was 41 and has a wife with two young children ages 12 and 7. He was a highly admired and well known individual in the Marion town community. I would often joke to Terry about his cousin's name, because unless you lived under a rock, the other Tim Duncan is a NBA player and former Wake player. Tim's death is a really sad story. As he was guiding his father who was driving the RV to hook up to the SUV, his father's foot slipped and instead of hitting the breaks, he hit the accelerater. Tim was in the path of the RV. It's just a sad situation for all, as Tim's dad suffered chest pains immediately after he learned that his son had died. I just hope that his father can find peace within himself and know that this was just a tragic accident. Please keep the Duncan's and Presnell's in your prayers. Below is the link for the story and it shows a picture of Tim. Tim also, in my opinion looks very similar to Terry. My heart aches for his children.
