What an amazing warrior for Christ! Although I didn't know Terri well, I knew how brave she was, Never did I see her without a smile and a blessing for those around her. May God be with Bobbie and her family during this time. God Bless

A precious soul has left this earth. But in our hearts she and her beautiful smile, her strength, her inspiration and her light will always be shining bright in our memories. It was always such a pleasurable experience to visit with Terri. Makayla would often go with me and she loved talking with her. Whether young or old Terri made you feel good. Good by for now sweet sister until we meet again.

Mom, words cannot possibly describe how much I’m going to miss you. You had a smile that could light up a room and a personality that could make anyone’s day better. I know that you are having an amazing time in heaven and pain free now. I love you so much. I will keep your memory alive daily.

I am saddened to hear of Terri's passing. Barbara, I know you are grieving....but I also know that Terri went hone to her Lord and Savior, and now she is singing in front of Him!
I will always remember her passion for the Lord. I also enjoyed working with her at the home health agency. She loved what she did.
I will be out of town on the 18th, but I'll be in touch.
Praying for comfort for you all,
