    My Sweet Brother Neal greeted Terry with open arms to heaven & gave her one of his big hugs & took her to our Grandparents, the famous & beloved Nana & DaddyJoe.
    Terry you will be so very much missed by many.
    You & I had so much in common, not just being Cousins, but Cousin-Sisters as we called each other.
    We both loved dogs so much. We always said, “There should be more dogs in this world than humans.
    Terrys God Mother Marcie, would have so much fun together. They would go to card parties & bingos, and they traveled together. They would spend quality time together shopping and talking, just being together just meant so much to each other. Jim was at a few of those card parties, especially the parties that started in early evening all thru the night thru the next morning.
    All of the Birthdays & Christmas together, happy times and all the laughs. Those are the good fun family times we will all remember.
    Terry when it’s my time to join you, you know where I’ll be…Over the Rainbow Bridge
    Love you Cousin-Sister

    Terry will always hold a special place in my heart. She was the mother of one of my closest friends growing up and always made me feel welcomed and loved in their home.
