I want to send my condolences to the family, my prayers are with you. Terry, your welcoming smile and friendly conversations will be greatly missed. I always felt at ease when I came into the break room at work when I saw you because I knew we would find something to laugh about. Rest in peace my friend.

I just heard about this sad news today. On my last day at United Healthcare 4 weeks ago, you gave me the longest best hug and words of encouragement. You will truly be missed. That smile, those conversations, you are awesome. I will miss you but God needed you more. 😔

I am so sorry to hear of the death of Terry. The passing away of a loved one is always with much sorrow. May we have faith and confidence in the Bible's promise of a time when pain, sickness and death are a thing of the past (Revelation 21:3, 4). My condolences are with the family at this difficult time.

My condolences to the family: May God's promised words give you comfort. Isaiah 33:24 says "No resident will say I'm sick" Soon we will all have complete relief from sickness. And even death will be no more. Revelation 21:4. Comforting future promises from God. With Deep Sympathy,

While words fail to capture the pain of losing her, you can look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our Heavenly Father return her to you.
