Dear Steve, Bartlett, Eden and Family,

I feel blessed to have known Terry since my childhood; we shared our 'growing up' years together in the Ashland community. I always admired Terry and her mother and father, and other members of her extended family. Just like you, I have many good memories.
Fred joins me in sending all of you our sincerest condolences. I feel assured that Terry has now gone home and will rest in peace.

With special thoughts,
Lyn (Letson) Hodnett and Fred
