Oh sweet Terry, We will miss your sweet smile and great hugs. Our journey with Dave and Terry started in a Sunday School room many years ago at Strawbridge United Methodist Church. We were all introducing ourselves and Terry said she was from Bakersfield Ca. and John said I am too and then they found out that they had both graduated from West High in Bakersfield and our friendship was started. Our favorite memory was a cruise we took with Dave and Terry to Alaska celebrating Dave and Terry's 25th anniversary and our 24th. It was an adventure we will never forget. We love the Erickson family and they will always be a part of our family.

Terry was a joyous and joyful person who lived life with great gusto and courage. I was so privileged to be her choir director in Kingwood, TX for many years and enjoyed making music with her and the entire choir. She was an example to all of us in how to deal with adversity and pain, and I think of her as a true saint of God.

She will be missed greatly but will also live on in my memories, especially when something difficult in life comes my way.

God bless you, Terry, and may you rest in peace with Christ.

We all know how sweet and how strong Terry was but she was also tons of fun and quite ornery! We always sat next to each other in church choir. Some Sundays when the sermon was a bit dry we found ourselves writing limericks about our friends in the congregation on the back of the bulletin. I remember one in particular she wrote about our choir director (whom we both thought of as our younger brother)that started like this: “There once was a guy named Todd, who loved Lori and music and God...” We would start chuckling to ourselves and couldn’t even look at each other for fear of bursting out laughing. Then we would look out in the congregation and see Dave with his arms crossed giving us a half glare, half smile trying to signal us to behave! It never worked. Another time I drove Terry down to MD Anderson and we got there around 9:30 in the morning for an appointment. As it turned out we were there all day and as we sat in a deserted waiting room at 2:00 am in the morning Terry spied the cameras that filmed the people in the waiting room. Then she saw the TV screen on the other side of the glass partition that showed what the cameras saw. She started performing for the cameras—singing and dancing and we laughed so hard we cried! I remember driving back to Kingwood that morning at 3:00 am thru a driving rainstorm being thankful for the day we got to spend together. She was one of the rare absolutely phenomenal human beings I have been lucky enough to call my friend.

Such beautiful pictures of lives lived so well. Terry loved her family fiercely as did Jeff. God bless you all in these very difficult days. We love you.
