Your mansion is being prepared for you , sister.

That brought tears... we are not ready to lose her, but it is comforting to know that
she will be pain free. Godspeed.. praying for pain control and peace.

I am saddened to hear that Terry has come to this part of her journey. She is an inspiration to each of us here. I have gained much knowledge by following many people here at the CC and Terry has always been such a fighter and always there to add much needed information to help anyone at all. I pray for comfort for her and her beautiful family. In the coming days I hope for much love and laughter and making of those final memories that will last a lifetime.

So many people are praying for, pulling for, and thinking of Terry. She should be able to feel all that love, caring, and support.
Terry's strong faith has shown through this whole journey. May it continue to bring comfort to her and her family.
