    I have had the pleasure of Knowing Theresa or Terry as I called her, for about 39 years when I started at Christian Assembly. We became fast friends then & stayed through thick & thin. I love dearly the family even though I haven’t seen them for a long time. My heart is saddened but I rejoice in her homegoing to Jesus. She was a beautiful example of a Christian woman. I pray that God blesses the service with His presence & especially Tom, her loving husband for many years, who beautifully cared for her. My heart goes out to the family as I know they will miss her terribly. My love to the family.

  6. With deepest sympathy ~ This life is but one step in a much greater journey.

    So saddened by the loss of a friend. Our years together at Richmond Heights Christian School were made memorable with laughter and prayer. She will be missed by those here but is rejoicing with her Savior. I am sorry I am out of state and unable to pay my respects in person. Know you all are in my heart and in my prayers.
