I always admired Terri and her sister for starting the Children's Respite Care Center. When I would go there to work with my students she was very welcoming and respectful of the children and other professionals. It was a team effort. She will definitely be missed by this community and more especially the children and families she served. May she rest in peace, free of pain. Prayers for her family.


It's been a while since I was in touch with the Fitzgerald's. Terri was a GREAT friend to my sister-in-law throughout her battle with cancer. I know, in my heart, they are having cocktails in heaven as we morn our loss. Cheers girls!


We were honored to know Terri through Dwight's work on the CRCC Board when we lived in Omaha. What an amazing woman. Our thoughts are with all of you as you grieve the loss of your daughter, wife, sister, mother and friend. She made such a lasting impact on the lives of so many people.
