“Please know we are thinking of Terri and her entire family during this time. Unfortunately we will be out of town this weekend and unable to attend Terri’s funeral. I have so many awesome memories of working with Terri. I used the word “awesome” because that is the word Terri would have used, such an upbeat amazing woman! I learned so much from her as a new nurse. She always said it how it was, never sugar coated much. :)
We will see her again someday. Much love and praying for your peace during this time. Hugs to you all. ”

“Terri was one of the first people I met at Spencer Hospital when I began my nursing career 25 years ago. What an incredible experience it is to work with someone so selfless and so full of hope and positivity. She impacted so many of us in ways she could never understand- just by being herself! There are very few people in this world that I consider exceptional and she is one of them. No more suffering my friend and I am happy that you are reunited with your dear son. ”

“I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I can not even explain how much I loved your mom. She was always a ray of sunshine, positive, and full of energy and ready to go. They both were very special friends to Donnie also. They were so good to him. She has fought a mighty battle and is definitely a warrior princess in my books. Now she is at peace and will be welcomed by her son, parents, and friends that have passed. Rest in peace Terri. Now she is watching over us all. Love to all.”
