Most of my recollections of my cousin are from childhood and adolescence, during week-long stays with my Uncle Pete and Aunt Joyce in Kansas City. What a special time it would be for me and my brother to join forces with Roger, Paul and Terry, and eventually Becky Sue and Timothy! Bold and adventurous describes this group, and Terry was no exception. I will miss his bright smile and his eagerness to join in on the fun. Years later that enthusiasm (and streak of mischief) was still evident as he shot baskets against the clock at the Sprint Center and racked up a humanly-impossible record. Let's all remember the good about good- old Terry!

April, I send this as a message of love and comforting to you and your family during your loss of not just your husband, but an AWESOME man, which showed in his care of those he served and worked with at Woodridge, of which 1 was me. I pray God's strength, and blessings and pray you trust him love and comfort now and going forward. Love, Anthony Jones

As an attorney in Johnson City, I was appointed to judicial commitment hearings by the court, and Dr. Borel was always willing to discuss my clients situations in order for me to be better prepared for the hearings. Based upon our mutual obligations for the commitment hearings, I became to know Dr. Borel quite well, as a kind understanding physician. And, Dr. Borel was always professional when he testified in court on the cases in which he was involved. I am sure his passing will be filed with sorrow by many in the community. My condolences to his famuiy.

My deepest and sincere condolences to the Borel family. Dr. Borel was my Psychiatry preceptor. He was kind, patient, and compassionate to his patients. I am grateful for the opportunity to have met and learned from him. I will always remember the empathy you had for your patients and your love for Reeses peanut butter cups. Thank you Dr. Borel. May you now be at peace.
