    Mike, Chelsey and Catie, Jerry and I have been praying for you and will continue. We will not be able to attend the service for Terry, because Jerry has the flu. I don't feel like I can leave him and chances of my spreading germs are too great. We will be thinking of you three and praying for you as you go through this difficult time.

    I have very fond memories of working with one of the greatest ladies I ever knew. Always thinking of the other person before herself. She was a great co-worker and she will be sorely missed. Thoughts and prayers to the entire family.

    We were so sorry to learn of Terry's passing. We do not know the circumstances that ended her life, but were so saddened by the news. I remember your Mom and all the fun times we spent together when we lived in Clyde many years ago. Watching you, Jessica and Chelsey play while we visited. Terry was a very sweet friend and loved her family and others. Please know our prayers are with you all in the difficult time. With much Love, Bobby & Nancy Birth ( Chelsey & Tiffany too)

    I knew Terry from work and know how much she loved her family just by being around her and listening to her talk. I'm praying for her family and friends to find comfort during this sad time.
