  2. Sending my heartfelt condolences to Terre’s family. He was the only person my husband would buy jewelry from. My beautiful wedding ring came from Terre. He was no doubt such a trustworthy individual with such a kind demeanor. I always enjoyed visiting with him when I went in his store. He will be missed!

  3. Terre will be missed greatly! He was such a kind friend. He lived next door to us when we moved to Dumas 30 something years ago. I could always go to him with my jewelry and have a great visit and catch up on what we’d missed since seeing each other last. I look forward to catching up with him when we meet again in heaven. Good bye for now, Terre!

  7. Dear Boswell Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Terre was always such a kind person always willing to do anything he could for someone else. I always enjoyed visiting with him. He loved talking about his family and couldn’t wait to tell you what was going on with them. I know he will be greatly missed but i know there is much rejoicing that he is finally home with his Lord and Savior. Lifting you all up in my prayers.

  8. Despite time and distance obstacles, I considered Terre to be one of my best friends. He was always in my heart and I always admired his good-natured, positive attitude. He was easy to smile and always seemed to see the best in people. For the past forty years, he crisscrossed through my thoughts and I considered him an unconditional friend. I will sorely miss him. Terre’s picture really shows these traits, not to mention his million-dollar smile.

    I am incredibly saddened, crushed actually, by his sudden loss and feel I was robbed of spending some time together during our upcoming “retired lives”. I am having great difficulty processing his passing. I heard/read somewhere that the reason people pass, is to teach those who haven’t, the real meaning and appreciation of life. In that sense, Terre has taught me more than the sum of my years.

    The best man at my wedding was my brother. Though all members of my wedding party were important to me, Terre was so special that he was placed in second position. It’s sad because, at some future time, I wanted to remind him of that fact, and now it’s too late. I hope he always knew that. The silver lining on that sad note is that it’ll strengthen my spiritual bond with him. All that Terre was, will remain with me until the end of my days.

    My heart also goes out to my extended family, Peggy, Cindy, Krista, Toby and Kourtney. I have many warm memories of them and they are very, very special to me.

    I am reminded of the poem by Henry Scott Holland titled “All Is Well”. I’d like to believe that Terre thinks that death is nothing at all, that he’s only slipped into the next room. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.

    Love you Terre. You are my brother.

  10. Terre will be missed. He was such a kind and gentle man. Praying for your family to find peace and comfort.

  11. I am so sorry for your loss. My first husband (Bob House) and I knew Terre through his parents DeVerle and Peggy when we sold Hochheim Insurance in Panhandle. He was a great guy.
    Please accept my condolences and my prayers.

  12. We are deeply saddened by the passing of Terre. He was a very good friend of mine beginning during the 5 years I worked with his Mother, Peggy, at Johnson Jewelry, later to become Sherman Jewelry. Terre was special to me, as was his entire family. I will always remember him for his infectious smile and kindness to those around him. We were both graduates of the Class of 1971. I will miss him greatly. My love and prayers go out to his sisters, Cindy and Krista and to his amazing Mother, Peggy, whom I love very much.

  13. Terre was a wonderful friend. We had lots of special times visiting about our kids and grandkids. He was a great jeweler and was entrusted with designing and creating some special pieces for me and my family. Terre loved his family fiercely. His face lit up whenever talking about his grandkids: Paislee and Connor. He will be remembered by many and missed greatly. Pat and I loved him and counted ourselves blessed to know him and his precious family!

  14. So sorry . I took my brothers in his shop about a month ago to get a watch band fixed and we got to visit with him for a few minutes. Our family had known your family for a long long time. He told us what was going on. I had visited with him in March. He was such a sweet person. Praying for your family
