We were married September 26, 2001 in Florida on Cocoa Beach and havent been apart since then. Terry gave me a wonderful happy life and I will miss him with all my heart. He showed me many places I never thought I would see. I worked at the Shell station on Route 2 in Dixon. Promoted to manager then when I became Ill I retired from there in 2017.
