    I only met Terry once and she was very gracious to me and my Mother. I know she was a great comfort to my sister-in-law and my nieces on the death of my brother. I also know that she was very important to my three nieces Marie, Stephanie and Deborah.
    The family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    My Godmother, Therese, was, as Marie said, probably more deserving of being in Heaven than almost anyone I know.
    Therese had a heart of gold and was one of the most loving human beings I have ever known.
