This is from your favorite niece in law, Terri, no not Carol, no not Gloria, TERRI! I will miss joking around with you on the telephone everytime you called Jimmy. I will miss seeing you at all the holidays we spend at Barbara's house. You always had a funny joke to tell me and loved to tease me. Thanks for always making me smile. I think you really ARE a funny guy.
When I met Jimmy, it seemed like I married into his huge Italian family. There wasn't a weekend that we did not spend visiting any one of his relatives. Your open door invitation to your home was always warm and welcoming.
It was you and Gretchen that invited me to meetings to have a clearer understanding of the Lord. I never always understood the topics you spoke about and you always took the extra time to explain the meaning of the WORD to me. Without your patience and teachings, I would not be able to say that our family is what it is today. You taught us the meaning of the WORD and to live our lives through God.
Now when the phone doesn't phone ring, and when the holidays come and you aren't there, I will hear and see you anyways...because your spirit will live through us ALL forever.
Love Your Favorite Niece in Law,
