    Hi Terry,
    Moving forward and up with all the courage and wisdom that you live and exemplify! Awesome 24 inches of books! It is a lot to digest — the work you did with students and other colleagues — and the work you will do in the future.

All the best to you next chapter in your life. Thank you for all you dedication, perseverance, and scholarly contributions. Jo Ann Hammond-Meiers
