Terri and I met beck in the 70’s when we both worked at Mapletree in Maplesville Alabama. Lots of good times and great memories of our friendship. She was always funny and cutting up even w hen things were not gong so well in her life. The best years of her life were spent with her loving and devoted husband Alvin Dantzler. Although we did not actually see each other when she moved to Georgiana , we still kept in touch over the years.
