I cannot begin to express how much Terry White will be missed!  His love for his children his love for his nieces and nephew.  He gave all the kids nicknames Tum- Tum was for Phillip,  YUK-YUK for little Terry,  Nunie for Terra-  Lizzi for terryonna-  and so many more-  All the kids remember his laugh his smile and his greatest of all times the " tummy corns ". He loved music no matter what era it may be every thing was " Tappy play that one record". Everything was a record and of course the greatest of all times!  He was Zandra's very best friend and was like a second dad to her and Tys girl's.  He was firm believer in Karma and just loved life.  I'm so sorry for this loss but I know Sharon Brandon and My guy Terrance welcomed him with open arms to my nieces and nephews and my children,  Ty and Zandra I love you!!!!

My deepest condolences to the children of Leonard Terry White: Terra, Devante, Terry and Terryonna. I also extend my sincere sympathy to Tyrone, Zandra, Phillip, and Tanika, Lenny Brown, the Brown family, the White family and the Hammond family. Terry was a special nephew. He had a kind spirit and a loving heart. Although my heart is heavy and my eyes are filled with tears, my dear nephew Terry will always hold a special place in my heart. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. 

I prayed for several years that the Lord would bring Terry home. However, God had another plan. I am sure that the angels in heaven are rejoicing, along with my sister, Sharon L. Brandon that a child of God has come home and free at last. Terry may you rest in peace. My flesh and my heart fail: but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26.

Lovingly Submitted.

Sherlette Gilleylen and Family

Family: Our prayers and thoughts are with all of you.  Be encouraged in knowing how special Terry was to so many.  Whenever he came by the house (P'burg back in the day), he was "always" friendly, mannerly and smiling. The picture we have will  be a our reminder of his cherished memory; plus the fact of just knowing him!  Terry......another good young man gone too soon!!  So sorry..........Rest in Peace
