The world is a better place … particularly Waukegan, Illinois and her beloved “up north” community.
A husband and a son were loved and cared for deeply … and completely. No wonder they are both such fine people.
Family and friends were cherished, given immeasurable amounts of fun, and shown kindness at every contact … all were completely blessed.
Terri in her steadfast work life impacted those around her, brought good to her employers and colleagues, dedicated herself to going above and beyond … she served well.
John 12:24 – Jesus in preparing the disciples for His death calls to their attention … “unless a kernel of wheat fall to the ground and dies, it remains a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds”.
Death comes … even to a lady of blessing like Terri … but it doesn’t come randomly – no matter what it looks like here on earth …
Psalm 116:15 – “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”
July 20th was a precious day in the Lord’s sight … a day protected and prepared as He received one of His finest as she came home. She has finished well her earthly part.
It is right that tears flow and grief is deep … this is a time of mourning here on earth.
But heaven waits now joyfully with Terri in their midst to see about the harvest …
The harvest begins as the seed of Terri’s life takes hold in the hearts of those she loved and touched. May it be a bountiful harvest of great blessing to many … as is only fitting …
- in light of the life of Terri Dowe.
