    To Terry’s family: She was such an integral part of the makeup of our high school class. Bright, vibrant, full of life and wonder and intelligence. We had so hoped she could have come to the fiftieth reunion last weekend. Her passing so soon on the heels of that event brings such sorrow. Still, her’s was a life well lived, filled to the brim and overflowing with her exuberance and joy. God be with you all as you grieve.

    My deepest sympathy to all of Margaret’s loved ones. I was shocked and so very saddened to see the notice of her passing in the Jacksonville paper. Margaret and I met at an Embry-Riddle Humanities Department welcome luncheon in 2008. Naturally, I was immediately drawn to this fascinating, friendly, rather irreverent woman and only later did I learn she was also a brilliant and intuitive literary analyst. I loved chatting with her and remember her endearing habit of swaying from left to right as she spoke as mamas with babies in their arms do. When she told a story, it was with wit and insight and southern charm.
    I am so thankful to have known Margaret and happy to think of the many lives she touched over the years. I hope knowing that comforts you in your loss.

    To terry’s family, especially Chip. She was a true light in my memories of Asheboro High School. The last time we spoke it was at one of our class of 68 reunions. Many years have past , but her warm a generous spirit is still with me. She sat behind me in Chorus and the admonition still rings in my ear, “Carl be good”, Shewas a dear friend and one of those rare people always optimistic, super intelligent and understanding. I hope your grief can be breif and your knowledge that she has returned home help you iat this time.
