“In my life, what has always given me strength, through cancer and trials and tragedy, is my first resource, my Lord, my God and His holy work. It is not without pain that I leave all of those whom I love so dearly. So, when the time comes, it is not outweighed by the joy of seeing my Savior. No ‘Poor Terri’ in going through 15 years of the trials of cancer and suffering. With each challenge in our married lives, we have become stronger and developed new relationships that may otherwise have never been. I count my blessings. I look at my life as one fulfilled with hope and joy, appreciation for husband, family and friends who have prayed me through, and have stayed by my side. Everyone’s life is worth living until the Lord takes them home.”
There will be a Celebration of Terri’s Life on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 2:00 PM in Calvary Monument Bible Church, 1660 Mine Road, Paradise, PA. The family will greet friends from 1:00 PM until the time of the service. Private interment at the convenience of the family.
