  • To Terry’s family,
    Terry and I were best friends in high school and I have so many great memories of her and the great times we had together. Over the years we lost touch with one another but a few years ago I went to visit her and we went to dinner and talked for hours about the good old days.
    She was a very unique “old school” person that truly loved her family. I will miss not having the opportunity to visit with her again. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  • You were absolutely the best sister in law & friend I have ever had. Paul and I will miss you so very much. But now you & Franny will ride on that Harley forever and ever.
