Dear John, We were so sorry to hear of Terry's passing. This is being written from a fogbound Coryell Island, and my thoughts are of you and Terry coming ashore after a trip to Hessel! It was always a pleasure to visit with you two, and I realize that there are years and years of family memories that will be replayed in your heart and mind. Peace. Valerie & Lynn Wolters

Terry was my elementary school teach at Cardinal High School for my 3rd grade year. She has always been my FAVORITE teacher and my heart is so heavy to have come upon the notice of her passing.
She will always be forever in my heart!

No words do justice to the way we felt when we heard that Terry had succumbed to cancer. Only the week before, she cheered ME up when I called her in the hospital. She always had such a positive attitude – a special talent for geniality. That seems to be a difficult virtue to describe, since it is so natural in its presence that you don't find it remarkable until it is gone.
She will be greatly missed.

Dear John and Family,

I am so sorry to hear about your loss of Terry. It seems like yesterday when I spoke with her last October about the joys of being a grandparent. She was such an amazing person and will be missed by many. Thank you so much for sharing the legacy photos of Terry. Her memory will live on in all of us.

With deepest sympathy,
Mary Ellen and Family

So sorry for your loss...She really was an amazing woman! I think of her as a mother and a teacher, two of the hardest jobs! She loved them both! I still remember the last time I talked to her like it was yesterday..It was like 16 years ago. I also hold on to her blanket which she made for me. She is always with you, hold on tight to all your memories. Love and Hugs to all of you...Tabby

Tim, Tally, Noam, and the entire Rossiter family - I'm so sorry for your loss. Although I didn't know Terry, I can tell she was a wonderful woman by the fine person that her son is.
