Thankful that I grew up as part of this sweet lady ‘s church family! She leaves behind an amazing legacy of family raised to love the Lord. She used her gifts for music and cooking to love on and point countless people towards the Savior she loves so much. We will miss her and look forward to seeing her and so many others again in Heaven! Love you Miss Terry, Bro Earl, Kattie, Charlotte, Jim, Angel, Tina, Laken, Steen, and all the babies! If you have any of her extra CDs, I would love to have one to keep. -Briana “Fae”
