Bost, Teresa “Terry”'s Guestbook

I remember Terry best as the young, energetic, yet always elegant mom of my childhood playmate, Mike. When I was over for a visit, she always provided us a loving, safe home environment, allowing us to enjoy hours of carefree, imaginative playtime. Ken and Terry were always ready for fun and adventure, like a Bost/Decker spontaneous camping trip to the Ozarks - decided at 6 p.m., departed at 9 p.m. It's these positive impressions, made nearly fifty years ago, that show what a wonderful, loving mother, wife, and friend Terry was on this earth. Now, each of us await out time to rejoin Terry in heaven, where much more joyous times await.

Ken and Family: After much internal debate, we reluctantly decided that it was best for us not to attend the service due to health concerns, but we were definitely with you in spirit. You have been constantly in our thoughts for several days and especially this morning. We hope you can find some peace as you deal with your loss.

Kit and Gary Warner

What a wonderful lady. The picture is beautiful as she was. Neat as a pin. She was wonderful to work with, so kind, so thoughtful and willing to help. After we all retired we enjoyed getting together and recalling the great fun times we shared in those many years together at MWCC and then BTC. Her kindness and Christian way of life was a great example for all who knew her to follow. Ken you have been a great care giver and I know it was a blessed life together. Thinking of all of you and her many friends, She will live on in the many memories she help create for so many of us. LL

Ken, So sorry to hear the news. We have such great memories of our time with you guys a LMB. We haven't done a very good job of being connected since we moved to North Carolina. However the times we shared are storied in the memory. You were blessed with a gracious and beautiful partner. Our sympathies to you and the family. May our Lord grant you and the family comfort as you move on. Much Love, Lee & Linda Kruger

Ken - I am so glad that you and Terry stopped by to see the WNB gang a while back. Terry's smile really brightened up the office - as it always did. The two of you continue to hold a special place in our hearts. Both Janet and I were very sad to hear about Terry's passing. But we know she is now at peace with her challenges here on earth. Consider this message as a virtual hug from both Janet and me.

Dennis and Janet Nease

We were saddened to hear of Terry's passing from this world. We have known both Ken and Terry many years (since we lived in Liberty and went to church with them). They were a bright and shining example of being a part of the family of God. We rejoice to know that Terry is now home and that we will get to see each other with our Lord and Savior. Just by their examples of loving each other as well as caring for others helped to make life in this world more bearable. I (Jim) remembered one time after we had moved from Liberty that we came back for a visit. Ken and Terry came up to us in the sanctuary and gave us a big welcome. Just little things like that made them special. Just remember Ken, that even though you are here and Terry is there that God is watching over you and someday we will all be together. We will keep praying for both of you and your family.

One day Terry's son Chris suggested I should make a change; I should talk with his Dad about joining WNB Architects as it would lead to better opportunities. I did that. I had been friends with Chris for quite some time. This was great advice that I will always be thankful for. We still keep Ken's office pretty much the way he left it. Some have suggested we put a foosball table in there; I like keeping his desk instead. Terry, and Ken were always such a great example of how to live life the right way and I will always be grateful for the opportunity to know this beautiful person and her family. I know that she is at peace now and has been welcomed with open arms.

Keeping Ken and family in our prayers. Ken & Terry were one of many couples at LMBC that were such an inspiration of showing love to God, one another and their church family. Hugs to you, Ken!

John & Leslie Henderson

Ken, We are so very thankful the Lord blessed you with being able to be there with Terry, right by her side, as she said goodbye to this world. Your tender care for her is such a wonderful example of God's love for us. Prayers for you as we know your heart aches. She was so sweet.

Don and Janice McDonald

Ken and Terry both have been such an inspiration to Lance and me. The way they loved and served each other in marriage was beautiful to witness. The way they loved and served the church for many up and down years has also been encouraging to see. Watching the lives of you both has taught us youngsters so much. We are thankful to have known you both, and have godly examples to look at and strive to imitate in marriage and service in the church. Much love to you and your family ❤️ Katelyn Milligan

You are missed so much. Your were the love of my life. Rest in the arms of your Lord and Savior. You knew where you were going, for eternity, all your life, even when you were suffering daily. Enjoy your new wings. They fit you quite well. Your life companion, lover, and husband, Ken

Ken Bost

We will miss this lovely lady that has been a part of our lives for over 55 years. We served and worshipped as members of Liberty Baptist Church (then Liberty Manor Baptist) with Terry and Ken. Their younger son, Mike, was one of our son, James' best friends and was his best man at his wedding. Terry and Ken shared their Anniversary date (June 15) with Jim and me. We enjoyed camping together and have stayed in touch through the years even after we moved to Nebraska in 1989. Our heartfelt prayers go out to Ken, Mike & Patty, Chris & Tina and the grandkids, Coleen and Conner.

Charlotte and Jim Decker

Such wonderful family memories, camping, motor cycles, model rockets and seeing my parents’ faces light up when getting together with the Bost family! Thinking of you all, and so grateful for close family friends.
