Every spring we’ll think of the pleasure we had in years gone by chatting with you over the fence as we worked in our garden. That precious memory will make things that much more beautiful.
Rest well dear Terry, always in our hearts.

I am Terry’s neighbor, we live on Harwich Street, and would often talk over the backyard fence. She was a sweet, lovely woman, I am going to miss her.
My sincere condolences to you all.
