    I was deeply saddened to read the passing of Mom. She was in my heart, even if I wouldn’t admitt it to myself. We had our ups and downs, as everyone knew. I want to send deepest sympathies to my sisters, Michele and Evelyn, and to all the family.

    Mom Terry was one of the sweetest women I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I was so saddened by the phone call I received, finding out of her passing. I believe that she is finally in Heaven and having no more pain and suffering, she can now enjoy spending time with those who have left before her. I now know what it meant to be an angel on earth as well as in Heaven….this woman was one in the same. Mom you will be missed every second of every day that we are here without you. You have brightened so many lives, including my family’s. My children have always called you Mom- Mom because they always felt the love that radiated from you. I wish her peace and safety in the arms of her loving Father in Heaven and those that have been there waiting for her to return Home. My heart goes out to Evey,Mikayla, Baby Alex, Michele, Dan, Jackie and Brittany and to her extended family, may God’s presence bring you all closer in the remembrance of a loving woman and to celebrate the life she lived to the fullest.

    Mom,how do I begin to say how much you will be missed?You were the foundation to this family and will be missed by us all!! everytime we had a picnic or party you and I would sit in the kitchen and cut veggies and talk and that meant the world to me.You treated me like I was one of your kids and to me you were my other Mom. I miss you already and my heart breaks to know that I will never see you again, but everytime I do stuff for pinics you will be there in spirit and in my heart. Mom I love you and miss you!!! you are with Aunt Janet and the love of your life! Thank you for

I just wish I had more time to be around you these last few months. And I regret that. I have so many fond memories of you. Some funny and some sad. They will always live in my heart.

    Mom, I do not know what we will do without you. You were the glue that held us together. you fought a long hard battle, but now you can finally relax and enjoy a healthy eternal life with some of your friends and the love of your life. I miss you so much. You had grandchildren that love you so much and a great grandson that loves you also. Your spirit will be kept alive by us and them. Give everyone hugs and send my love and ask them to keep an eye on you until I see you again. I love you mom RIP
