    My deepest condolences to all of Terri’s family. She was a true warrior during her battle against pancreatic cancer for 16 months. She was determined to beat it but in the end she lost that battle. I’m blessed to have known Terri and call her my friend. I will miss her more than words could describe. Rest In Peace my friend.

    I didn’t become part of the family till late and I never got a chance to physically meet you, but you helped me out on a school project I had one time and I never forgot that. I wouldn’t have passed without that. I wouldn’t be where I am today without that. You were a kind and generous soul with your time and I appreciate you for that. I’ve been told you were more than happy to reunite with your lost love. So rest peacefully and enjoy your forever. Thank you Terry.

    I’m am going to miss Terri at our Family Thanksgiving dinners, where she’d give her hilarious rendition of Oak Island. I’m already missing your lively political Facebook posts. A beautiful, strong, funny woman that’s going to be missed by many of us.

    Our prayers are with your family. My husband passed about three weeks ago from the same cancer. He had it for the same length of time. No one should have to suffer that the long. My heart us with your family.

    I’m going to miss her so very much. From Chiefs games to our late night chats. So very sorry she had to go through this battle. She was a true friend. My deepest condolences to the family.

    My deepest condolences to all of Terri’s family. I’d not seen her since we graduated high school and all moved from the neighborhood. Thanks to social media we, and many other friends and classmates, were able to reunite and follow each others lives and loves. Terri was a bright light to so many people. She certainly loved her Scott and her fur babies. Like so many others, I knew Terri was sick but had no idea it was cancer. She didn’t deserve to have to fight that fight. May her soul rest in peace with her beloved Scott. She will be missed by many. May good memories help to bring some peace to her family and friends. God bless.
