Mom, I have cried so many tears this last week but I'm trying to pull it together to be there for Dad. Not many kids can say they attended college with their mom and enjoyed it, or worked side by side. I can. I loved all our trips to the shows at the music theater or Stoneham. I didn't even mind getting the 2pm Sunday shows so you would be awake till the end. While I've had a love for tequila , you would get excited about a mimosa at a brunch. While all the kids in school loved General Hospital, I would race home to watch Guiding Light with you and have our fluffernutter sandwiches and milk. I know you approve of my latest decision and want me happy , but I need to make sure Dad is ok first. You will be proud of how strong your grandchildren are being and proud of David and Cheryle in taking care of Dad. Someday, when I am able, I will make a fluffernutter and pour a glass of cold milk and think fondly of you. Of course, as the years have moved on, it will have to be low-carb bread, Sugar-free peanut butter, a sliver of fluff and lactose free milk, but the memory and love will be there. Love you and miss you more than anything in this world 😢😢😢😢💕💕💕💕💕

I loved working with Terri for so many years. She was such a positive force in our office environment; always making everyone feel better than when they walked in. We love and miss her terribly. May her memory be for a blessing.
