Dear Kathy, Beth and Michelle, Thoughts of your mom, which are frequent always bring a smile. So much life, so many stories in one lovely person.

- Marty McLean, Friday April 3rd, 2020

Heartfelt condolences to all on the passing of a great soul. I can't fully express what a pleasure and privilege it was having Terry and her equally awesome twin, Sherry, as older sisters in the house growing up on Oak Street. They showed the way for Maria, Bill, Marty, Ann, and me in so many ways, including being big-hearted with just a dash of mischief to keep things lively. That seems to have been a Hannon family formula which keeps on working for us, even in troubled times.

I’m sorry I can’t be with you tomorrow.Thank you to all who cared for her these last few years. Love you all. Ann McLean
