I first met Terri when we both went to work for Rome Hospital in the kitchen. I was 16; she was 15. For some reason, she took to me like a duck to water. It was Friday and we were getting ready to leave work. She asked me what I was doing that night, and I told her I was going to the Lake Delta field days. That night, lo and behold, here comes Terri walking through the crowd with no shoes on! From then on, we were pretty much inseperable. I was the maid of honor at her wedding to Rom and she was my maid of honor and Ron was our best man.

Our closeness continued through the births of my son DJ and Tania, and then Ronald. We did EVERYTHING together. Somehow, we drifted apart once she went to work at the State School. Our paths crossed again when she had Kelli and came up to where I lived to bring me clothes Kelli had grown out of for my daughter Tiffany. So funny that years later, Kelli and Tiff became friends when they lived in the same apartment house on George St! Before that though, my son DJ passed away and both Terri and Tania attended his wake. Little did we know that less than a year later I would be attending Tania's funeral! Our paths seem to have always crossed. Many years later, Ron came to work for my ex and I in the food business and did so for many years. I became very close to Ron. I loved him and I loved Terri even though we didn't move in the same circles.

I will always hold a special place in my heart for her. She was like my little shadow. We were besties for many years. Rest in peace my friends. I will see you both again one day.

Terri and I worked together for many years and shared a lot of special and trying times. I remember how we always laughed and everything was funny. We were so young. I have and will always think of her. To Fran, Kelli, Ronald and Toni my thoughts are with you.
