    I’m not sure what I’m going to do without you, Terrie. I know you’re watching over me now, and still pushing me to get moving and “get my green on”!

Well, you’ve definitely fulfilled it: you’ve been the positive energy for every single person who knows you! You were loved by soooooo many! Until we meet again—- I miss you — ????????

    The “wrong person” died.
    You left us too soon….Where did you go Terrie?”
    Everyday I touch your face and look and your smiling face
    I am so glad we had our spiritual talk.
    You were my rock and I drew strength from your words and the way you treated people.
    I am so grateful that you were (still are) my sister.
    I know….I understand
