  • To the amazing woman that raise two fabulous girls. I am so sad to hear of your passing. Please know, you left behind an amazing legacy by teaching your girls to be independent even in times of strife, self – sacrificing in times of need, intellegence in times of uncertainty, and ultimately, what it means to be a friend. This is every Mom’s wish, when she leaves the earth, that she created strong women that will persevere even in times of sadness. You did that Terri, you prepared them to face anything that happens to them in thier life, including this.

I’m sorry she won’t be here to meet my babies on the way. She was almost as excited to meet them as I am. That’s how much she cared about others. I wish her peace in the next life.
