Sincere condolences to Terry’s family especially her wonderful mother. Such a courageous and beautiful faith that Terry lived. Always remember her great sense of humor and laugh. I went to visit her last week and I left feeling so much better, because of her grace and warmth. Her son Brian was also visiting when I stopped by,” what a precious legacy. God bless Terry❤️

My thoughts and prayers to Terry's family. Remembering when I worked with her Dad at Crowley's during the summers, and coaching her son Matt on my baseball team back in the 90s. Such a wonderful family. Rest in peace Terry.
