  • Sweet Traci, I am still in utter shock and disbelief of Terra’s passing. My heart is beyond heavy as I think about everything you and your extended family have already endured. She was taken too soon, way too soon. I will always think of you, Terra and your parents at church and the occasional times at our houses as kids. You all made me and everyone around feel like family; loved and cared about deeply. The world was truly a better place with Terra, Terry and Teresa and I know it will continue to be a better place because you are here to carry their torch. I know you can do this because you have always had an inner strength and faith in God that is unbreakable, and because you have 3 beautiful souls who will be behind you all the way. I love you and will forever hold your precious sister Terra in my heart. 💗

  • Traci and Said,

    I have no words to express how sorry I am to hear of Terra’s passing. We spent so much of our childhood together…Terra and I playing baby dolls, running around outside, swimming at the Jaycee pool, and those special trips to McDonalds. God bless you both!
