Dear Rich, Zachary, Jessica & Mackenzie,

I met Terri when our now 20 year olds were at Carter Nursery School together. Terri hosted a Halloween gathering for the class of 3 year olds and their siblings and their parents and included the teachers as well. She made sure all of the kids had a fun time and felt included. And, she did it all with a big smile on her face. After our kids went to elementary school, I was always happy to bump into Terri out and about in Needham over the years.

My husband and I are so sorry for your loss and pray that your fond memories provide some comfort during these difficult days.

Fondly, Anne & Tom Finucane

Rich, Zach, Mackenzie & Jessie-
We are so sorry for your unimaginable loss. I think of Terri every time I make her cowboy chip cookies, as Terri was the kind of neighbor who was always more than willing to share a recipe (some other people are very protective of their recipes, you know). Which happened more than once when I had something delicious from her kitchen. We wish you the comfort of wonderful memories and her warm embrace, and peace in the knowledge that she is free from all pain.

I worked with Terri at South Shore. She always had a positive attitude and was an excellent advocate and Nurse for her patients. Always trying to make things better. I know how much she loved her family and it is never easy to loose a wife and a mom. I believe that her spirit lives on in her loved ones and most importantly in all your hearts. She was very proud of all of her children❤️🙏
