    Terri was my big sister, my biggest supporter, and my best friend. I loved her dearly. She was alway there for me day or night. As she was for everyone in her life. She loved her puppy chase who is 16 and still going. She loved her new pup also and her family dearly. Thank you all for everything Laura Bobo. And Nikki you said it all so perfectly that is who Terri was I couldn’t have described her better thank you for that ❤️

    I just talked to her a couple day before Friday. She said she was doing okey and couldn’t talk right then. I am so glad I had talked to Monday. We had a good talk. I didn’t get to see her as often as I would have liked. I loved her dearly and will miss her laugh and always talking about everything. I will miss her a lot. Aunt Florence

    I am a colleague of Terri's, (Aetna - Sandy Claims Dept.) Terri was such an amazing person, colleague & Friend. She was a wonderful source of knowledge & would go out of her way to help anyone in need.

    I didn't know Terri very well because I am only her co-worker, but I can say that she was truly the light of our team! She was always kind, sweet and funny, and her love and joy for her new puppy always warmed my heart too. I am sending my condolences to your loved ones and friends.

    Sending our most sincere condolences to Terri's family including her two children Makenzie and Jeremy Symes. We are so glad to have met Terri back when Shane was doing our family's genealogy. They traveled from Utah to Florida so we could meet in person. I stayed in touch over this last decade and have a very special piece of jewelry that Terri made. She was so creative. She will be missed. Our hearts are with you all during this very difficult time.
