  1. WE ONLY HAD HER FOR 16 DAYS IN AFRICA BUT IT IS OUR LOSS AS WELL AS YOURS. SHE WAS A SHINNING STAR AND LIT OUR LIVES. WE WILL MISS HER FOR THE SMILES AND THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER SHE GAVE TO US

  2. Dear Terri and Sherie I only recently learned of your Mom’s passing. I feel so bad that I wasn’t able to be at her memorial. My late wife and I met your Mom when they were in the same Bunco group. The guys were only invited to play at the annual Christmas party game, but it didn;t take long to become very fond of your Mom. She was a constant inspiration during Kim’s long illness. She was a very special lady and I will always remember her for her special kindnesses and friendship. We used to get together for lunch occasionally,(not often enough), and she was always so full of life and enthusiasm! She always reminded me of my Aunt Helen- another little bundle of energy and spirit. They are both missed very much. Feel free to contact me by e-mail or at (310) 372-6924. My deepest condolences, Doug Wilson
