This morning while at the gym I decided to make a quick call to Terry’s mom, Mary. I try to touch base with her every few weeks or so because I know that her husband Jeff is very sick with cancer and that he was just admitted into hospice a week or so ago. With the recent loss of Terry a few months ago, I want to help fill in the void for her, being that I am now tbe closest link she has to Terry other than from her other children . Mary like I had been a 24/7 caretaker for her spouse and just like me, has had to go thru the very hard task of watching him decline in health each and every day.
Interesting that I left this voice mail message this morning to primarily check on Jeff (Terry’s stepdad’s) well-being, only to find out a few minutes later after contacting Sherry (Terry’s twin sister) that Jeff had just passed away almost to the hour of me making this call to Terry’s mom and leaving her a voice mail message.
I then began to think, could it be that Terry somehow thru his spirit had triggered my mind this morning to make this call, knowing (probably well before us on this earth) what was happening at that very moment. Maybe it was Terry’s way thru me to give his Mom some love and comfort at a time that she needed it.
As you know in several of Terry’s former blogs he expressed his great love and admiration to his Mom and was very appreciative to her for all the love and support she gave him throughout the years, especially during his difficult times.
With Christmas being only about one week away and with Mary just losing her husband while still having great difficulty grieving like a mother would for losing her child Terry just a few months ago leading up to the holidays, I know that if anyone can provide some emotional and uplifting support to Terry’s mom Mary it would be you guys.
So, as your time permits would be great if you could speak to Mary (Terry’s mom) in whatever way you are comfortable with doing via this blog today.
I know that Terry’s mom looks at my daily blogs from time to time and after the dust settles with her current loss and funeral, I know she will resume catching up on my blogs and would be very touched to see this and to get some comforting words from Terry’s friends out there that she has always been appreciative to you all for supporting him during his time of need. I know that Terry will be smilng down upon you all for doing this for his dear mom. Again, as your time permits and only if you are comfortable with doing this.
Thanks in advance for all your help!
