To Lalonnie Cortez Alice And the entire Terry Family I would like to express my deepest and heartfelt condolences to you all. As I read this testament to Missionary Fannie’s life, I immediately thought ……Wow.. What a truly blessed talented and incredible woman she must have been, to her family and many others. I can only imagine he hardships and challenges she must have endured. From growing up working her family’s farm through the great depression, her travels throughout her life, singing like an angel, and raising a family. I would have liked to have learned of some of her adventures (and as a musician hear her songs) Without a doubt the Lord greeted her with open arms and great joy. The Peace and Love of the Lord be with you always. mike
