Early in me and Christina’s friendship, I woke up one morning to the power being out in my apartment complex. Christina offered to let me come over to get ready for work. I remember Terry answering the door and both of them rushing around to make sure I had everything I needed to get ready- I was a complete guest in their home instead of a 6am inconvenience. I remember Terry trying so hard to cook me breakfast and making sure I had a full belly before heading of to work. Just that small initial encounter showed Terry’s big heart and where my best friend gets her urgency to help others. I’m truly sorry for those that are impacted by her loss.
Vincent & Marissa
Sending our condolences to Christina, her sister and family, respectfully. Vinny and I are holding much love in our hearts for you and are truly sorry for your loss.
In Love, Vincent Orleck and Marissa Calderón
