We lost our friend, our sister, our mother, our grandmother too soon.

When I come to the end of my journey, and I travel my last weary mile,

Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned, and remember only the smile.

Forget unkind words I have spoken; Remember some good I have done,

Forget that I ever had heartache, and remember I've had loads of fun.

Forget that I've stumbled and blundered, and sometimes fell by the way.

Remember I have fought some hard battles, and won, ere the close of the day.

Then forget to grieve for my going, I would not have you sad for a day.

A service celebrating Terrie's life will be held at 2:00 pm on April 29, 2014, at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Knightdale. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The American Diabetes Association.
