    I remember Teri came through and provided a lot of comfort when we lost dad. She made sure Roger got down here and I will never forget some of the hard but precious moments we all shared. She was an awesome person and I will never forget how much she touched my soul when it was at its worst! RIP cousin Teri!

  7. I’m met Terry at the poker room in Gaylord, she and Roger would come and play, we would win some, we’d lose some, but she always always had a smile on her face. That smile we are all going to miss. I love you guys. If you need anything Roger, I’m a phone call away
