Toni & Family,
Even though I’d only reconnect with Terry at our class reunions, she was never forgotten. We had several slumber parties together while at OHS that sure were lots of fun. Mary Dale & I had hoped she could make a visit to us in Florida. As we hold on to those great memories so will you. My heartfelt condolences to all.

Condolence from Joan & Steve Gaul (Zachary Millhouse’s Grandparents) on May 15th, 2014 9:55 am

So deeply sorry for your loss. Although we did not know her personally she obviously was a neat lady. I did get to see examples of her photography with all of the pictures of Zach and Sarah that she took; they were awesome and I am so thankful to have them to cherish today.
Thoughts and prayers go out to your family at this most difficult time. I am sure Zachary and her are laughing together. I know he thought a lot of her.

I have so many fond memories of your Mom. She used to bring you to my apartment in Atglen when you and Mike were babies. She made me beautiful Christmas ornaments that I put on my little tree each year. They will now bring back happy memories every Christmas. She was a dear friend and I will miss our phone chats. Remember all of your happy times.
Love, Mary
