I CALLED HER TERRY, EVERYONE CALLED HER TERRY
SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL
SHE WAS SWEET, KIND, AND UNDERSTANDING
SHE WAS EVERYTHING A WIFE AND MOTHER COULD BE
SHE WAS THE NURSE AND TEACHER FOR OUR THREE DAUGHTERS
SHE GAVE THEM DIRECTION, PROTECTION AND UNDYING LOVE.
WE HAD 65 YEARS OF GOOD AND BAD, BUT ALWAYS WITH LOVE FOR EACH OTHER.
WHEN THINGS GOT TUFF I CALLED HER TESS.
WHEN I WAS DRIVING SHE CALLED ME , WHO KNOWS WHAT?
BUT NEXT DAY TERRY WAS OK.
I HAVE A LIFETIME OF MEMORIES TO LIVE ON FROM NOW ON.
MAY GOD WATCH OVER HER AND GIVE ME DIRECTION TO LIVE BY.
GOOD BYE MY TERRY

Since sharing my parents’ story of their determination to live independently in their own home, I now want to share this eulogy which was given by my father at my mother’s funeral last week. They had three wonderful months together, back in their own home, before a stroke took my mother way too soon. They should have had more. They deserved more. But we will always be grateful for those last 3 months of laughter and love. Miss you Mom
