  2. Leon & I are so sorry for the loss of Terry, She was a beautiful person inside & out, I learned so much from her. She was a very hard working lady, & she achieved every goal she set for herself. I’ll forever remember her little sayings (it’s all good in the neighborhood, & see ya I wouldn’t wanna be ya) family please accept are heartfelt condolences.

  3. To the family of Terry, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. When Lazarus fell sick and died, Jesus told his disciples that he was going to awaken him. (John 11:11) Jesus knew that death is a deep sleep state in which the dead are awaiting the promised resurrection. (Acts 24:15). In the near future “no one will say I am sick!” (Isaiah 33:24) May your faith in God’s promises get you through this difficult period.

    John and family, we are thinking of you during these difficult times. Terry had a great sense of humor and an even greater heart. We will miss the conversations and laughter but will always have our memories from having known her for over 15 years. Again, our condolences to you and your family.

  5. Miss Terry worked in our building at OSU (Mendenhall Lab). Her daily visit to our offices during her rounds was a ray of sunshine in our windowless environment. We all miss her smile, her laugh, and her positive attitude was contagious. She brightened all of our days and made us all feel better about working here. We’ve been missing her for some time now, and are saddened to hear of her passing.

    Dear Ms. Terry’s Family,
    We here in OSU Hagerty Hall miss Ms. Terry’s smile and her quick wit. She is so beloved! Personally, it is with great sadness that I received this news because Ms. Terry always gave me such feelings of hope and happiness when I got discouraged, or was having a tough day. I miss her so much! I also want to extend a bit of hope to Mr. Edwards, I know you’re going through a tough time and I will pray you. I wish you all the best.
