Terriseathia Planter was a wonderful friend even when she was in school I think we met in the six grade and continue of years of school together until High School after that I left South Carolina but I finally joined Face Book and found her page I sent a Friendship Request and she accepted and I always check in on her from there but after a while nothing didn't know what happened with her and just thought she was done with her page. New in a million years did I think we would be here talking about her and letting her know that we loved and missed her. I found out how special she was to many of you not just myself. As she crossover I salute you your job her is done and you are on a new journey. I just want to say goodbye and hope to meet your spirit again. Much love to you and your during this difficult time praying for all of you take care stay safe. WRW

So sorry to hear about Terri. She came to work with me around 1986 until 1989 and we remained friends and kept in touch for many years. We made several trips to Cincinnati to see Reggie play and one to Atlanta. She was the best in all endeavors and I am so sad we lost contact over the last few years . My life is blessed for having her as a friend.
