Condolences

  • Stefanie I am so thrilled that I was able to get to know Teri. She truly embodied her nickname, “Sunshine” and was always making me laugh. She helped me see the bright side of things and I enjoyed hearing her life stories...about her motorcycle, her job at a Chinese restaurant years back, her good memories with friends and family. I will cherish the times we spent laughing and I will miss you, Teri.

  • Judy Tilleson Many years have passed, but I once shared a sincere commonality with Terry. As I remember her, she had a sparkle in her eyes, awesome dimples, laughter that was contagious, and a positive outlook on life. She truly was a free spirit, and she knew I respected her talent and love for her Harley. I was very sad to read of her passing, and am sending my sincere condolences to the family.

    All pain is over and you are in a better place, Terry❣
    Someday we will be reunited. ????
    ????,
    Jude
