The world lost an amazing person yesterday. I’ll be heading back to OH to say my goodbyes and do my best to console my best friend and her family through this terribly difficult time. L, you are the most amazing person I know and I am completely in awe of your strength and composure. I’ll be home soon.
He only takes the best
I credit Terry for my love of hummus, red wine, and chocolate chip pancakes. Every glider in the sky immediately takes me back to summers floating in their pool, watching the planes take off from the airport next door, their motorless counterparts floating behind. I’ll never look at a Tae Bo or Cindy Crawford workout video without seeing her in a sweatband, urging us (as awkward 7th graders) to join. And that time I had the terrible cough that wouldn’t go away, but insisted on trying to sleep over anyways? Let’s just say most wouldn’t have kept their cool when I asked to be taken home at 2 am.
Terry leaves behind a legacy, and many memories in the hearts of all who’d had the pleasure of meeting her. I feel so blessed to have had such a wonderful person in my life for the past 20-some years. She raised two incredible daughters, a beautiful grand-daughter, and many more non-biological “adopted kids” – all of whom are better people for having known her.
All my love, may you finally rest in peace Mom2,
