My heart is deeply saddened for TerriLynne’s family. Her mother, Mary, has been my close friend for many years, and I have followed the hopes and dreams of her remarkable daughter, her husband, and their children. TerriLynne’s love of family will leave an after-glow. It will surround her family when they need it most, and become a keepsake to cherish. Please accept my sincere and heart felt sympathy.
