Terry was my friend in grade school and again in high school. She
loved horses and talked about them all the time, and to watch her ride was very awesome for some one like me.

A free spirit and very honest person, she had a talent for acting and was great fun to practice plays with, as she would have such a different take on things, and would play her role wholeheartedly. I remember being impressed and coming to realize that her acting skills were a step beyond just pretending. She was a person who gave others more permission to be more openly themselves by just being so truly honest and accepting of others herself
