I worked with Terri at FCCS back in the 70's. She was more than a co-worker she was a friend. My sincere condolences to the family.

Ronnie and Family,
Terri and I had wonderful times growing up. She was one of the sweetest people I have known and I am so sorry you had to lose her so early in life. I am honored to have had her in my life and although we grow up and lose contact with old friends and neighbors she will always have a place in my heart. Take care

A Mother's Crown
Heaven lit up with a mighty presence,
as the Angels all looked down.
Today the Lord was placing the jewels
Into my mother's crown.

He held up a golden crown,
as my darling mother looked on.
He said in His gentle voice,
‘I will now explain each one.'

‘The first gem,' He said, ‘is a Ruby,
and it's for endurance alone,
for all the nights you waited up
for your children to come home.'

‘For all the nights by their bedside,
you stayed till the fever went down.
For nursing every little wound,
I add this ruby to your crown.'

‘An emerald, I'll place by the ruby,
for leading your child in the right way.
For teaching them the lessons,
That made them who they are today.'

‘For always being right there,
through all life's important events.
I give you a sapphire stone,
for the time and love you spent.'

‘For untying the strings that held them,
when they grew up and left home.
I give you this one for courage.'
Then the Lord added a garnet stone.

‘I'll place a stone of amethyst,' He said.
‘For all the times you spent on your knees,
when you asked if I'd take care of your children,
and then for having faith in Me.'

‘I have a pearl for every little sacrifice
that you made without them knowing.
For all the times you went without,
to keep them happy, healthy and growing.'

‘And last of all I have a diamond,
the greatest one of all,
for sharing unconditional love
whether they were big or small.'

‘It was your love that helped them grow
Feeling safe and happy and proud
A love so strong and pure
It could shift the darkest cloud.'

After the Lord placed the last jewel in,
He said, ‘Your crown is now complete,
You've earned your place in Heaven
With your children at your feet.'
