  1. Alma Sumler

    I would like to express my condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the coming resurrection according to such scriptures as [Acts chapter 24:15] and [John 5:28-29]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] which says that, Jehovah God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
    With Deep Sympathy.

  2. Marsha Spivey

    Terri was such a sweet, special friend. I will miss her so much. So happy that she will be able to celebrate her birthday with Jesus this year! Rick, Keni, Eric, and Tommy, you have been an amazing source of love and support for Terri. She loved you all so very much. Sending you my sincere sympathy and love.

    This is the 1st I knew. Keni grew up with my daughter. Terri was always there for her children with a beautiful smile. Thoughts and prayers for the family.
