    Terry was a true friend and her presence could light up a room! With her southern charm and all, she always made you feel like a member of her own family, whether dropping by for a quick visit or an extended stay. She also had no problem putting you to work like family. Terry was not only an awesome instructor and dancer, but also a great storyteller. She always managed to get a funny story or two about the perils of family life in between routines. Terry left us on earth for heaven doing what she loved best – Jazzercise. Knowing her, she’s probably already forming her own class up there. Ed, Kelly, and Kasey you are in my thoughts.

    Ed, Kelly and Kasey- I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember Terry well as a little girl growing up while we were living in Greenville back in the late 50s. She was always a go getter and never lost it. She made me fill ver welcomed during the weekend of Fay’s 90th birthday celebration at your home. Also enjoyed talking with her at a couple of weddings. My heart goes out you and the girls during this difficult time,
