  1. Terrie was one of the best friends that i had. I will forever miss her and she was an amazing person and a breath of fresh air. Anyone who knew her, knew she was very compassionate and very giving. Rest well my friend; heaven awaits another angel.

  2. When I think about my cousin Terrie, I think about the way she used to laugh. She had a really funny laugh. I’d hear it and wanna laugh with her regardless of whether what was going on was actually funny ( in my estimation) or not. I totally wish my sweet cousin a peaceful rest and a joyous reunion with all those who have surrendered their mortal-ness before her..#Team Terrie

  3. I have nothing but fond memories of my cousin.. She was a beautiful, gentle and kind person! She loved reading (Harlequin Romance) novels.. When we lived with my Auntie Alice in Great Lakes, Illinois house I loved to sit with Terrie when she played the piano…. ❤️🙏❤️

  4. To the family and friends of Terrie Harper always cherish the fond memories of time spent together and although you may grieve the Bible can be a source of comfort. At (Revelation 21:3,4 it speaks of a time when there will be no more sickness or death, also at (Acts 24:15) it speaks of a resurrection that we all can look forward to. May the peace and love of the God of all comfort be with you all. Comfort can be found in our Creator through prayer and through his word the Bible and in our Savior Jesus Christ.
