Dear Terrie, I don't know if you remember me I'm your cousin Doris Manning Carrs daughter. Aunt Loretta called me today and told me about the loss of your precious daughter. We are all so terribly sorry. I can't imagine the pain you are in. You are in our prayers. May God wrap his arms around you and comfort you. Love and hugs, Deena

My brother and I attended law school with Tera. We both sat next to her in one of our classes and even though she didn't really know us, there was a time or two she overheard us talking about how we hadn't prepared for class and she slipped us her outline and gave us a brief rundown of the cases. In a place usually competitive and vicious she was the complete opposite. Always helping those around her. Take comfort in knowing that though her days on earth were cut short she impacted a lot of people and will be missed greatly. My condolences to her family and friends and I pray you find comfort in the passing days.

Terrie, condolences to you and your family on the passing of your sweet Tera. It is never easy to lose a child, no matter what. I pray for your peace and comfort as you continue your life journey without your daughter's earthly presence. She will always be in our hearts, as she is now in Gods hands.

Terry, I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I didn't get to know her at school - only her brother, Jack. May you find some comfort as time goes forward in recalling all the fun and laughter you were able to share with her. My deepest sympathy and many prayers are with you all.
