There are so many people that will do a better job on this. Dande let me know, Sun and others. I posted 1 of Terry's Videos under my news when she asked, she gave what she had here. RIP TV For those that were lucky to know Terry before she was ill.

BTW...When Terry was ill, she was not the same person that I first knew. Her personality changed, doesn't all of ours change when we are sick, depressed...etc. Thus, This is for the Terry V I knew ....Oh that Face!!! That Heart that she gave....xx RIP Darling and No Rainbow...You are in the Heavens...I will remember that personality as well as "Face that you showed me"! xxx To you and Yours...Hugs from an ole friend, sadly not a current one.

Thank you for your post, and for the video, Mm, and thank you for the candle link, JL.

Thank you Marilyn for this Beautiful Tribute. Thanks for the links to lighting of candles and her page Zen, for all to see what a remarkable woman she is. I feel Blessed to have known Terry and feel her Wisdom, Love and Grace every moment of my Life. Although I'd only known Terry less than a year I felt I had known her many lifetimes. I have never met a more Loyal friend, more Loving-Caring-Giving Woman, or more Wise Soul. She will be in my Heart for eternity. As her body is now pain free I believe her ever lasting Spirit will be Shining upon us all...forever!

nobody is ever forgotten on care2. went to her profile and noticed she planted 500 trees. what a legacy. our planet is a whole lot greener and cleaner because of terry.

This is a lovely tribute for Terry and I'm glad you were able to post. I'm sorry my dear, couldn't get here sooner but I'm not on as much as I'd like to be, things going on in my off C2 life that required my urgent attention. Terry would be most pleased.

We all need to remember with each other we don't always know what is going on in a persons life. They may be sick, or maybe someone close to them is ill, or having a difficult struggle with keeping a roof over their head or the children might be having issues. So we must try to give each other a bit of leeway in life not all of us are going to hit the Highest and Best mark each and every time with everyone and everything we do.

Reminds me of the quote: “Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle” J.M. Barrie

Some sent me information behind the scenes, I did not place the personal conversation to me, just your wishes to the family or to Terry. I left that on Terry's profile page and I also lit a candle to for Terry and another for her family, as well as notifying the C2 members as to her passing. Forgive me for not yet getting a video on C2 you asked Marilyn, as I said, urgent matters had me in other places. I will still place it upon C2, as it is a lovely song.

Thanks for this loving tribute Marilyn.

I had already heard the sad news a few days ago :'-(

Terry was a wonderful person, who I had the honor of knowing through care2, and that extended outside of c2 as well through personal emails between us as well.
I was kept apprised of her situation after her hospital visit, and was incredibly saddened by the turn her illness took.

I will light a candle on the c2 page, though I had already lit one on my own on gratefullness when I got the news.

We are all diminished by her loss ♥

Only the last 500 donations appear on our page just now--actually Terry had planted over 1,300 trees Catherine. She was a very special lady who touched the lives of many and will be missed.

Sheryl, I am so sorry I rushed into this when you told me, while I knew Terry was ill, it broke my heart to hear she passed. So many of my dear friends here are gone, some truly close, some known but just not as close. So many are so ill...I find myself so proud that people that are not well, or can't get out take time to get here to Care2 and try hard for the VOICELESS. YES TERRY Posted videos for people to take notice and now I feel bad I didn't post a video she sent to me. Dande, you are truly so gracious, when I did this I felt like I stepped on your toes. While Terry V was close to me we sadly went different ways, did I miss a message? Don't know and for now I am going to try to wipe out all 8000 messages and start fresh. To many friends, to many special people here on Care2...Just can't decipher who to keep accept when there are so many people that care. I am the LUCKY one to have found so many close people in 2009.
.I do think that Terry "V" would be pleased with this since I knew her videos. Went to Terry's page and see you posted everyone's message to her. You are such a gift to those that are Lucky enough to know you. JL A...Sun, and yes Dande, Zen. So many others. I wish that another video or a tribute to Terry would be posted with her OWN Candle group. I will light another one. FOR DEAR TERRY!

I didn't know Terry, but had seen her avatar on the site many times in the past. Will light a candle for her spirit and family as she begins her next life free of the encumbrance of a human body.

Thanks Marilyn, so behind. I'm very sick and am having problems such as you described. Lovely tribute dear. I sent a few green stars here and there but didn't really know her, but every Care 2, member counts and will be missed. Sorry for your loss dearest. also thanks to Zen and Dandy for all your help.

Vinnie m (334)

Thanks Zen, for that Link. Yes, it was who I thought. I did know her from here. We've sent each other greenstars. Folks there is a group called "Remembering Care 2 Friends" that Care 2 has set up. So I'm sure they'll be sending her there, so you can visit whenever you feel like it. I just visited a friend on her birthday who passed away in Texas two years ago, and made some new friends there too from her friend list. Now Terry is with her hubby.

This is Terry's daughter, Kris. Though I was never a member on care2 I know my mom was and finally made it to see her page. Thank you for all your kind words about my mom. I was very thankful that my family and I spent a day with her on Nov. 9th. I am thankful for being with her also in her last days on earth and when she passed. She is missed and thought of often.
