Our deepest sympathy go out to Mark, Ernie and Gina, and family. We were shocked when we got the news having just seen her at Lowe's. She was always keeping busy with her rentals and always talked about her boys. May she Rest In Peace.

Terry has been a part of our family for over 15 years. She took care of my Mom, Emma Hernandez, by being a good friend and stood by her when she was having a hard time dealing with the death of her husband, Gilbert Hernandez, my Dad. We, me and my wife, enjoyed having conversations with her at the restaurant, Chiapas where we would go after Sunday Mass. We miss her so much and pray for all of her friends, family, and others who blessed her with their presence. She loved life and lived it well and Happy. God grant her rest in peace.

Terry was our neighbor and friend. We were shocked and saddened of her passing. She always let me put a political sign on the corner of her home and her rentals.My husband and I have shared many meals, birthday events etc. with her and her many friends at a very popular restaurant named Flor de Chiapas (a place I call "Cheers" on the West Side because everybody knew your name). She was quite, respectful, kind generous and adored her grandchildren. She will be dearly missed.
Our sincerest condolences to her family.
Peace and Love,
Santos and Grace Villarreal
