Becky and Kris Hardy

My friendship with Terrie was built on trust, respect, admiration, shared experiences and sometimes just sheer laughter. An absolute warrior in this battle, always willing to fight again. She had fortitude and I could absolutely rely on her. She walked the walk. Sometimes hard to find anymore. I loved her and she loved me. I knew that and so did she. She was the sister I never had. I will miss her and so I say, Not goodbye....but so long. Until we meet again.
