Goodbye Terri Luanna da Silva

Terri Robinson

(from Terri's father, Spider Robinson)

My daughter Terri da Silva (AKA "Luanna," Graceful Woman Warrior) passed away a few hours ago, at a little after 1 PM EST, at Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, CT. Her departure was peaceful, without fear or pain. Present at the time were her husband Heron, his mother Sueli da Silva, me, Terri's friend since high school Nicole Wademan, Terri's Aunt Dori, her Aunt Laurie's daughter Jamie (Laurie herself was busy getting Marisa from school), Jeanne's first husband and Terri's bio-dad Daniel Corrigan, and two of the da Silva's nearest neighbours here in Connecticut, sweet people whose names refuse to stick in my scrambled memory.
