Terry & Jimmy White

Terry and her son, Jimmy discuss how they experienced and dealt with the loss of Terry’s husband and Jimmy’s father.


Their focus on his memory and the wonderful time they were able to spend with him were priorities after his passing, and helped them to keep going during the grieving period. Celebrating their husband and father maintained the focus on him as a person, rather than cancer as a disease.

We interviewed Terry and Jimmy in September of 2018. Their will to “keep going” and to maintain a positive mindset after experiencing loss is an important reminder for us all.
