Truly sorry for your loss! I have not had to experience the loss of a parent or sibling but I can only imagine the pain. My heart and prayers are with your family at this time. Looking at our final destination gets a little less stressful when we know we will meet our christian friends and family members when we get to heaven. God bless you Worley family!

She answered to many names. No matter the name, she answered with love and kindness. She will be greatly missed here on earth, but we will be reunited in heaven someday! Enjoy your walk with Jesus Terry! We will see you soon!

I’m so sorry for your loss. I feel lucky to have met Terry and to have had her as a neighbor. I’ll miss her greatly.

Terry you were the definition of unconditional love. Watching you light up when your sons and grandchildren were around every single time is a true testimate of your love, and importance of family. Watching you giggle and laugh with your siblings/n laws rubbed off , and your laughter was soo contagious. You were always the true you, and that was much respected. The Lord had blessed you with a determined nature to push through everything that was put in way. You had always put others first, and you spent your life caring for others. I hope that we can carry on what you had taught us, and love like you.
We will see you on the other side.
We will forever miss you.
Chad, Jamie and the kids
