    Sorry to see that my dear sister has passed away. I was there the day she was born and we were raised together in Washington, DC. We haven't been in touch for past few years and I would have appreciated knowing that she was sick. I pray that Jesus made Himself known to her before she passed. If she did have a personal relationship with Christ, then I know I will see her again when I pass. Love you Terry.

    We will miss her more than words can say. We love her and know she is in a better place with all our loved ones that have gone before her. Heaven added another twinkle in the sky at night .

    Terri, I'll always love you baby. You were definitely one of a kind. I'm glad you are at peace and my only regret is that I wasn't able to see you before you passed. You'll forever be loved!
