I am very sorry for Terri's leaving us way to early. I was a guard at the Gulf States building on pine street in the early 90's and saw her and others daily as they came in the building. She worked with Phil Brannan and others there on the twelfth floor. SHe interacted with everyone and was a joy to be around.

Jerry and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I met Terri when I volunteered in IT at the hospital. We became immediate friends. I recognized her as a sweet, kind Christian woman, a good wife, mother and friend. When she told me about her medical issues, I prayed fervently for her. She was a fighter. Now that her fight is over, she is at peace. I will miss her. Sending prayers of comfort to you and all your family. Rest in peace, Terri, my friend.
