I have so many fun and fond memories of Terrie, there is hardly a place to start. From UT vs FLA football rivalries, trying to get a Diet Coke in Hawaii, dine around in Quebec, hanging out in Atlantic Beach and all the other innocent trouble we could find, the laughs never stopped. She was a kind and generous sweetheart, loving Jack, her pups and family so much. I knew this was coming, I had just hoped we could share that final shenanigan. My heart is with her family and friends. She will be missed, but live forever in our hearts.

Terrie, I will miss you. You were so kind, thoughtful and extremely generous to me when I moved next door to you and Jack. You loved you’re family and friends deeply and you showed it through your unconditional actions.
I’m at peace knowing you are no longer are suffering but I’ll never stop missing you a woman you took a stranger under her wing and made her feel special.
With all my Love,
Rhonda

Terrie has been one of my best friends for 28 years. We live a few houses away from each other. I will miss her sweet smile and great sense of humor. We have shopped together, vacationed together, spent endless hours just talking. I feel that I have lost a true friend. I know she is at peace and is not suffering now. She is in heaven with her God. Peace and love to Jack and Terrie's friends and family.
