  2. Jim,
    My sympathy to you and your family. I didn’t know Terry well, but she always had a welcoming smile when we’d cross paths in a store or in church. Prayers are with you.

  3. Jim, and family,
    I have so many wonderful memories of my friendship with Theresa, as a long time neighbor. She taught me to sew, we had wonderful talks over coffee, lots of laughs about our boys.. ‘Karl and Mike’ and worries ‘ ha ha ‘ . I loved how Theresa took time to spend time with me, when she had so much going on in her own busy life, working, taking care of the kids, always involved with the schools. She was a great friend, great neighbor. I loved smelling her bread when she baked, or her pies.. yum She once made me a chocolate pie for helping her out, and after tasting it, I wished I had gone in a closet and ate it all by myself.

    I could go on and on, I feel so blessed to have known Theresa, and of course all of the Vogel family. I send my prayers to you all. I know you have such a loss in your hearts. I do also.

    Love Cherrye Dunaway

  4. I had the pleasure of knowing kind, beautiful Terry, during my 40-year-marriage, to her husband Jim’s first cousin, Fred Chris Rabe. My mother-in-law, Fred’s mother Marie Vogel Rabe, was Jim’s nice dad Hans Vogel’s older sister. I have so many happy memories, of seeing Terry with Jim, at family parties and weddings, throughout the years, before illness sadly struck. I was not only truly blessed, to have known Terry, but I am still blessed, to have maintained contact, with Jim.
