I did not know Terry was here in Gladwin. I live in Gladwin and also did not know she was ill. I am her cousin. Dale Brown was my Dad. I am very sorry for your loss.

So sorry. Terry and I spent a wonderful summer together in Van Nyes, CA. She was 7 years younger than I but always very sweet and outgoing. Have not kept in touch but thought of her often. We were first cousins. My mother was a half sister to her father.
