I just received this email and I cannot stop crying:
You may not remember me, but I am the sister-in-law of Terry. You did an interview with Terry Pettigrew in Calgary in March-April that made our lives turn up-side down. Tery died this morning. But he passed peacefully with my husband by his side. We are so grateful for the work you do and the blessing of finding our brother for such a short but amazing time!! Thank you for that. If you ever come through here, or nearby, please look us up. We owe you a hug. Terry will no longer be homeless, his new home will be on our mantel. He was able to ensure that before he died. Don’t be sad, just know that all you do has paid off. God has truly blessed us with your work. Love and best wishes. God is only started to use you. We are praying for you.
Bev and Larry
Terry was a sweet man dying of cancer I first met while visiting a homeless shelter in Calgary, Canada. I was really moved by Terry and put his video up that very night. The local news media was with me when I visited Terry and The Calgary Herald put his story on their front page. They even included my video in their online version.
Terry’s brother, Larry, who he had no contact with for 34 years, saw the news story and the two brothers were reunited. Please read and watch the powerful video of the day they shared here.
There are no words to describe this miracle. I am so very grateful to have played a small part in Terry being reunited with his family for his last moments on Earth. Although homeless most of his life Terry died in a home with loving family. Here is the original video of Terry the night we met:
