To family, friends, and all those who lifted Terry and I up with
prayer, and words of hope, support and love during these past 14
months saying thank you seems to fall far short of how we both felt
knowing you were all there for us. The gift cards and gas cards
brought Terry to tears on more than one occasion. His words … “I
didn’t know people cared so much about me.”
To our business associates and customers who allowed Granite Image
to operate through this challenging time with your loyalty and
patience thank you also seems to fall short. Your staying with us
through these months allowed us to keep moving ahead day by day.
Granite Image may still be ‘by appointment’ for a while longer but
it is my intention to honor what Terry created and proudly continue
serving your printing needs.
To all of you now reaching out to offer your sympathy and support,
the family and I are all truly grateful. It is a tribute to a man we
loved very much. During thirty plus years Terry and I were together
more hours of each day than apart. Not many couples have that
opportunity. Although I miss him deeply I still feel him by my side.
You are invited to join us at a Celebration of Life Gathering,
Saturday, September 19, 2015 at 11am at The First Congreagtional
Church in Pittsfield.
If you won’t be able to join us at that time but have
something to share, please email me at
[email protected] or send to Granite

Another “thank you” to Kenny Brown for “bush hogging” area around
