To the Editor,

The children and grandchildren of Mrs. Birdola Terry would like to thank our many, many friends for the calls, flowers, cards, visits and prayers during our motherís passing.

Special thank you to Dr. Turner and Greater New Mount Zion, the Rev. Burgus and Joshua Chapel A.M.E. Church, Community Funeral Home, Legends Oaks Nursing and Rehabilitation of Ennis for excellent care that really was appreciated when needed the most, Dr. Pickens for motherís many years of care, and a very special thank you to Constable Jimmie Ray and the Waxahachie Police Department; her last ride was a ride done with dignity and grace.

Loosing a mother is probably the hardest thing that a family has to go through, but your many, many acts of kindness made it just a little more bearable.

Jackie Mims,
