  • I am so sad to hear of Terri's passing, Pete & Rob. It's probably been more than four decades since I last saw her but Terri's always held a place in my heart -- hanging out together in the early grades -- a few of the latch key kids at Hampstead School. While our mothers were at work we were home signing along and pretending to be The Beatles with LInda Mliodinski (another latch key kid). Later hanging out at the Lily Restaurant and after that moving on to the long walk to Fraser's Grove having adventures by the side of the river. After that we lost touch except for FB birthday wishes. The world is a smaller place without her in it. - Posted by: Eleanor Wakula ((old) friend) on: Mar 07, 2020

  • To Pete, Josh and Rob, It was with great sadness I learned of dear Terri’s struggle. A beautiful, fun, strong, independent friend since our childhood days at ‘the lily’.
