I've known Terry since 2009; she was someone who always put the needs of others before her own. The first two thoughts that came to mind at hearing of her passing are of the day I met her cat, Ariel; whom she referred to as "Her Royal Highness", and of course, the legendary, "Crown Royal Marinated (bacon-wrapped) Sirloin Steak Dinner" I cooked for her (because when I mentioned that long ago I worked in a steakhouse, she challenged me to prove it). A tiny piece was shared with Ariel, and Terry declared, "You've managed to achieve Her Royal Highness Ariel's official approval!" (This became a running joke for years, as to whether the cat was happy or not about something going on in Terry's life.

Over the years, she proved again and again that she was there for her friends, no matter what. She gave of herself, sometimes to the point of real sacrifice. She suffered a lot of pain and injustice in this life. We spoke of those things at length, and she remained committed to being patient, loving and kind in spite of the hardships.

She also had a passion for helping those who had less. This was met with her time, love and prayer. In this, she was one of the most unselfish people I am honored to know as a friend. She rescued kitties, tried to help homeless people with food and words of encouragement (including trying to get them to seek help through the proper channels), and often gave a lift once in a while when someone she knew had their car in the shop. She sometimes slipped a few dollars to the person at the Food Lion ahead of her, when she noticed them struggling to get that last of the cash needed to pay for their groceries.

She definitely lived by an ideal that we should all emulate; that God remembers each act of kindness, no matter how small.

What I will miss most is that phone call where she would explain the latest news, and how "Her Royal Highness" was not amused.

Rick, Bonnie, and all those who love her (that are too numerous to name ex temporé), let's resolve keep in touch, and make sure that Ariel gets her treats, even though Terry is no longer there to give them to her. You too have my love, friendship and prayers!

I close this with a word of prayer, and invite those willing to join in this petition on her behalf:

"Eternal Rest, grant her, O LORD, and may Perpetual Light shine upon her. May her soul, and the souls of those faithfully departed, through the Mercy of God, Rest in Peace.

Terry was a good friend. She was always asking how I was. Terry was a very caring person. She will be missed.

Terry was a great Jaycee, which is how we met. She was an officer of the Reisterstown Jaycees and active in Jaycee Women long before I joined. She was extremely dedicated to kids causes. What I really loved about her was her positive attitude and her great sense of humor. It was a long time ago, but as recently as 2 years ago, she found me on Facebook and we caught up like no time had passed. I hope that her friends and family know how much those memories of her spirit and commitment to community service meant to me and the Jaycees, and I am sure she continued to give even after the chapter closed down. Slleep well, my dear, you've earned it.
