       Funeral services will be held privately for Terry’s immediate family only, due to the COVID-19 mandates issued by the Governor of Kentucky.  The service will be streamed online to the Hager Funeral Home Facebook page beginning at 2:00 PM on Monday, December 7, 2020.  Burial will take place in St. George Cemetery.  Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions to the American Heart Association or to the American Cancer Society.
