Dear Shaffer family and friends, we are so sorry for your loss. We hope that with the passing of time this sadness can gradually be replaced with the many happy memories you shared together. Meanwhile, may you find comfort in God's promise to soon 'undo all tears, pain and even death' (Rev. 21:4). Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Jean, the Sigma Kappa sisters are all saddened to hear of your loss. We never met your husband, but you talked about him often with such love that we knew he must have been a special guy. Sending lots of love and hugs to you and your family at this difficult time.

My prayers for the Shaffer family. My family, the Maddens lived just down the street on Evans Road, Pennelleville, NY. Terry a few years older from me was a very nice boy. I remember the snow ball fights, sledding, etc. we all were country kids. God bless.

To Jolene especially, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember meeting your dad a handful of times, so I can't say that I knew him, but judging by what others have posted, he certainly was well respected, and loved. May god bless you, and take solace in knowing that your memories will last forever.

It is sad to hear of Terry passing so early in life, he was a pleasure to work with and a person I respected. My deepest sympathy to Terry's family and friends.

To our neighbors The Shaffer family. Frank Gay Rd will never be the same. Terry was a kind, generous, hard working family man. We have never seen him without a smile on his face or a helping hand to lend. Terry will be truly missed.

I will remember my Uncle Terry as the true man he was. He would always be there to help my Mom with her "to do lists". He could build, fix, repair or replace anything. He had skills beyond my comprehension!!! He was a strong, good person who I looked up to. And his bonfires never disappointed-the bigger, the better. Aunt Jean, Jolene and Heath, my heart goes out to you all and big hugs all around. Uncle Terry was dearly loved and admired and I shall miss him greatly.

I was completely stunned to learn about Terry's death today. Terry and I had a lot of good times together in high school. I will always remember seeing him in Marcellus when my son was playing basketball and his daughter was cheerleading . We meet numerous in Brewerton and had great conversation about our families. He will be truly missed.
