Sibling of 5, but only 1 remains, through her life and remaining friends and family she will carry on.
We lost our friend, our sister, our mother, our grandmother too soon.
When I come to the end of my journey, and I travel my last weary mile,
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned, and remember only the smile.
Forget unkind words I have spoken; Remember some good I have done,
Forget that I ever had heartache, and remember I've had loads of fun.
Forget that I've stumbled and blundered, and sometimes fell by the way.
Remember I have fought some hard battles, and won, ere the close of the day.
Then forget to grieve for my going, I would not have you sad for a day.
A service celebrating Terrie's life will be held at 2:00 pm on April 29, 2014, at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Knightdale. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The American Diabetes Association.
