Terry was an amazing mom and grandmother. As her older sister I may have teased her way too much. We made much of her groundhogs day birthday. Don’t think she likes it much. But then, like our mother, she could give as good as she got. She often reminded me of the boyfriends I brought home and how it was just to rattle mom. Well maybe she was right. The world will not be the same without her. I know she is joking with mom right now. Love Suzi Rinne
