Terry, Karen, Daniel, Amanda and family... I love you all so much, and I am so sorry for your loss. Terry, your mom was so sweet and fun to be around. She had such a cute smile, and I will always remember the fun we had with her at the out of town tournaments, bowling and playing cards. Hold on tight to the great memories you have of her, and she will live on in your heart forever. With love, Jennifer C.
