Love you so much, thoughts with you at this time Kira!
Will miss you forever Terri. Praying for you Kira
Shea,Kira and rest of her family n friends So sorry for your loss. You know she would still come into Subway to see Nay and get excited when I was there also. She will be missed
I will miss talking with you. Terri loved to talk about God and His Word. As much as she was able, she desired to seek God and did. Terri knew, that Jesus was the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6) She often requested prayer for herself and children. I will miss our Wednesdays together. Jesus said “Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am.(John 17:24) So tell we meet again my friend.
Aunt Terrie will always be in my soul. She and her twin sister (Aunt Tracy) are where I got my love for wildlife and appreciation for the earth we live on. I am so glad she left in the way she always wanted to. My last words to her were, “I love you Aunt Terri “. I’d just spoken to her a few days earlier..I am finding comfort in it now. She will be forever missed and remembered.
I hope that whoever loved her and appreciated her will always feel the warmth of her love or the sear of her wrath. We probably never will fully understand the theory of life and death, but we must move on and do the best we can with the wisdom we have.
With each moment of sorrow or joy we experience in life it is another stepping stone to growth. Our future depends on each one of us and we need to make this world a better place in honor of a woman who will be forever etched in our hearts. We will not say farewell for one day we will meet again.
Thank you for teaching me how to be compassionate and forgiving. Thank you for telling me you loved me every time we saw each other and every time before we hung up the phone. Thank you for showing me unconditional love that can never be replaced. Love you Mom!
