   Posted Fri April 23, 2021
My mother was Vergie Terry Bailey, the sixth child of Edward and Laura Terry. Clarence was the seventh child of a total of eight. They grew up in a very close family that stayed in touch. With Uncle Clarence's passing, they have all left us. He, like his sisters and brothers by example shaped me and my many cousins. The devotion to family, to your life's partner and the Christian values of Clarence and the Terry family will always be cherished. Thank you, Uncle Clarence and thank you Aunt Viola. The legacy Clarence has left is unmatched by any additional words that I could write. Aunt Viola, please accept my warmest condolences and I wish you peace and comfort.
