I met Terri in March of 2020 when I moved into Bull Rivers Shoals. She was the friendliest neighbor and introduced me to everyone and took care of my plants often. Terri had nicknames for everyone and I called her Sunshine because we all revolved around her light! Terri took care of all things - people-animals-plants. She loved big, gave generously, and had a constant smile even when going through the valleys of life! She loved Sam- was proud to be her Daddy's Princess and her Mom's BFF. May we all carry a little of her sunshine within us and love our neighbors and life whole heartedly. Love and light- Ellie Love Covington

Caitlin and family and friends: My heart hurts. Terri and Caitlin were the first neighbors to greet us when we built our home on Ferguson Ave. The best neighbors! And friends! Forever friends. Caitlin was my best buddy from when she was 3 years old and until they moved. In my heart n mind, she still is. I treasure every moment and memory that we have shared. Terri was a beautiful person, inside and out. She loved gardening and yard work. I would look out the window and there she was mowing and edging not only their yard but ours as well. All the while, dressed in pearls and makeup and never batting an eye at the heat. So many stories… I’ll never forget. Prayers for comfort and peace. Hugs n love. Irma

I was so sorry to hear about Terri going into the hospital. I felt it was bad from the start. When one of God's lights begins to flicker it is always sad. But they belong to Him. I know Terri always loved me and her hugs were special. "I love big men", she would say often, and my favorite, "we are the Outlaws, we have to stick together." She was always up beat and a good friend. I will always remember her this way. So sorry for the rest of her family it is hard to lose one so young. Bill McLendon the other OUTLAW.

I’m sad to hear that Terri passed. I’ve known her and Tammi for the better part of my life! We shared a bus ride together for many years to and from school. I’m glad I got to know Terri she was a sweet caring person. Tammi if need anything please don’t hesitate to ask. Your in my prayers!

- Joey Costa, Savannah , Georgia

I'd like to share my deepest condolences to the entire family. Fortunately for me the time I got to spend with Terri in our later years at our class reunions was a gift. She was always so full of life and ready for the party. It makes me SO Happy to think that she got to see the Braves & Dawgs win one last time. Since we were little kids on Wilmington Island I always thought she was so kind, caring and nice. I will miss that laugh and oh boy, that smile. Thank you Terri for removing that splinter in my finger LOL. You have permanent residency in my heart.

- Darrin Widner , Escondido , California
