To Keith and the entire family. I want to send my deepest sympathy. I can’t begin to imagine what you are all going through. Terry was a very bright light in this world. Terry and I met in school. We became friends and had lots of fun adventures together One of my favorite memories was a trip we took together to visit Vovo in Florida, a day trip to Disney World and a bad sunburn. Another wonderful memory was her beautiful smiling face every time my Mom and I would go into Citizens Bank We would laugh comparing our pregnant bellies. We lost touch when I moved, but reconnected on Facebook quite a few years ago. It has been a pleasure sharing the joys of being Grandmothers. But the one thing I will never forget, is her love for you Keith and her entire family. Rest In Peace Terry

Terry was one of a kind. My beautiful & bravehearted girlfriend from childhood to present day. We valued our friendship beyond high school years , the 5 of us,: Terry, Judi, Gina, Carrie, Nancy & kept the sisterhood connection a priority at least 2x a year every Summer & every Christmas for beach & dinner....for
5 decades. That’s a lot of years...& a treasured gift especially now...full of memories from grade school, many seasons of adulting : from proms, to weddings to birthing kids, to celebrating Terry & Keiths lovely 40th Anniversary party. So much ‘life’ interwoven in our lives together: husbands, kids, grandkids, special stories, collectively exchanged.. We easily picked up where we left off each time, growing up as it were, in our personal lives & sharing our family news, updates, & necessary girl talk! I treasure those times of laughter till we cried & cheering each other ‘on’. We miss you & we can’t take that you left us so soon but we will never forget you & the positivity you brought into our lives ...& those who met you along the way. We pray for your beautiful family..& the rich legacy you deposited in them. ❤️💔💋
We are forever friends & will meet again.➕
