I will miss seeing Terry on the bus trips and at the senior center. She had a quick wit and was always a “spunky one” until the end!! There will be a definite void at the senior center! She certainly lived a wonderful long life! That doesn’t make her passing any easier. I just pray that the Lord will give you all comfort at this difficult time.

Terri always had a smile on her wherever she went. Her and I had a special bond when I would come into the Uxbridge Senior Center. She will be missed. Heaven has a new funny & beautiful angel! Anyone that was able to meet Terri was blessed! Condolences to her family.
