To My Dearest Family
Some things I’d like to say,
but first of all to let you know
that I arrived okay
I’m writing this from Heaven
where I dwell with God above
where there’s no more tears
or sadness there
is just eternal love
Please do not be unhappy
just because I’m out of sight
remember that I’m with you
every morning, noon and night
That day I had to leave you
when my life on Earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me
and He said I welcome you
It’s good to have you back again
you were missed while you were gone
as for your dearest family
they’ll be here later on
I need you here so badly
as part of My big plan
there’s so much that we have to do
to help our mortal man
Then God gave me a list of things
He wished for me to do
and foremost on that list of mine
is to watch and care for you
And I will be beside you
every day and week and year
and when you’re sad
I’m standing there
to wipe away the tear
And when you lie in bed at night
the days chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you
in the middle of the night
When you think of my life on Earth
and all those loving years
because you’re only human
they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry
it does relieve the pain
remember there would be no flowers
unless there was some rain
I wish that I could tell you
of all that God has planned
but if I were to tell you
you wouldn’t understand
But one thing is for certain
though my life on Earth is o’re
I am closer to you now
than I ever was before
And to my very many friends
trust God knows what is best
I’m still not far away from you
I’m just beyond the crest
There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb
but together we can do it
taking one day at a time
It was always my philosophy
and I’d like it for you too
that as you give unto the World
so the World will give to you
If you can help somebody
who is in sorrow or in pain
then you can say to God at night
my day was not in vain
And now I am contented
that my life it was worthwhile
knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile
So if you meet somebody
who is down and feeling low
just lend a hand to pick him up
as on your way you go
When you are walking
down the street
and you’ve got me on your mind
I’m walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind
And when you feel the gentle breeze
or the wind upon your face
that’s me giving you a great big hug
or just a soft embrace
And when it’s time for you to go
from that body to be free
remember you’re not going
you are coming here to me
And I will always love you
from that land way up above
Will be in touch again soon
P.S. God sends His Love

I worked with Terri at Canadian and Air Canada for many years. She was a very good lead agent, always prepared and ready to help any of us. I think of how much she loved her kids. She was a special friend to Borden. My sympathies to her family. I hope she is at peace now.


Terri was a good neighbour for a number of years. Kind, thoughtful, so involved with her children, and an outstanding cook. I think of you often Terri, especially when I look at the big painting hanging in the WRONG spot in my living room. You were right, but my own mother won that battle – I’ve not forgotten your ‘enthusiasm’ !! My deepest sympathies to Kyra, Kendra and Kory and mother Casey. May your precious memories bring you comfort in the days to come. Terri made her mark on the world with her smile and kindness. and will surely be missed.

Mary Ann Reutow

I spent many years being very good friends with Terri (and Holly) growing up in east Edmonton going to elementary, junior and high school together – and all the trials and tribulations that come with those times. We leaned on each other through a few bad times and shared much, much laughter and happiness as well. We attended CGIT, were part of a bowling league and did all kinds of activities. After we were both married (and attended each others’ weddings within a few months of each other) we fell apart – that happens when there is a new life partner and lives …. I’ve always been sorry to not have contacted her in some way. I will always happily remember her and look back to those years as her being a big part of my life. RIP my friend.
