We just wanted to let you know how sorry we are that your Mom and Grandma passed. She was one of the most kind, smart, loving, positive people I have ever met. She was so good to me as a little child and throughout my life. I have such wonderful memories of her and all your wonderful family. I feel so blessed to have been included in many of your family activities; making life long friends along the way. She was such a special person. We are thinking of you and know how much she will be missed. Hang on to the great memories and the love she gave. Dean and Ann Chrissley

Dear Family, So sorry to hear of Terry's passing . Dick and Terry were great neighbors. We remember them during the 1998 ice storm and trading off the generator and taking care of the different neighbors homes. Draining water and emptying freezers..A great couple back together again.

We have been Dick and Terry's neighbors for 25 years and we enjoy very fond memories of our times together. They were wonderful and and very special to all who lived near them. We considered Dick the president of Washington Is. and Terry the first lady. We will miss them and always remember their contributions to our little community. May they rest in peace knowing they are together once again.
