Your love and kindness lives on in all those that you touched. We all miss you.
  • 50 years old
  • Born on November 19, 1960 in Michigan, United States.
  • Passed away on December 26, 2010 in Michigan, United States.

 This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Terry Lu Lafferty, 50, born on November 19, 1960 and passed away on December 26, 2010. We will remember her forever.

  One year and it feels like Terry should be walking up from behind. Terry gave love and support to who ever was in need. In her complicted life she gave her time to everyone making them feel special and in her eyes they were. Somehow she could smooth life out making the moment feel memorable. A smile, a wink, her presence would be felt by all. Her love and caring emitted from her without a spoken word. We are all missing you deeply.

You said this is our words. "A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe - inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhavit the mountain? by Kahlil Gibran"
I feel you are much nearer. Love, Hiroko

One year & I'm looking back wishing I had done more for Terry. Lucky day when Terry sat down beside me and we enjoyed each others company. The sparkle in her eyes, the beautiful smile, & her easy manner had me feeling special. Terry loved family & friends & treated all living things as special, excluding fishing (smiling). Her inner strenght seemed to flow to others. Always a part of me.

Hope to have a bench and plaque completed in the spring. Your favorate time watching all the baby animals grow and your flowers blooming. Still pretty weak when I think of you. Love forever, Chip

I had the pleasure of being Terry's friend for 30 years and an even bigger honor being in her and Chip's wedding. Terry was a wonderful person with a big heart and the joy and laughter she brought to people will truly be missed. She gave me and others courage and strength to face and embrace life even in the midst of her fight against cancer. She truly was a great woman,and will never be forgotten

"Terry could make a new friend feel like an old friend. We had a great day (girls day) before her wedding to Chip. David and I were both blessed to stand with them as they committed their love to each other. She will be remembered as a brave beautiful soul. Terry was committed to cancer research, so in her honor we will continue to support her cause." Love David & Nona
