In celebration of our friend Teri Binkley's life












I know that the term warrior is overused with regard to cancer but Teri brought a new meaning to the word warrior.  She was a warrior in life, on the race course, with her illness, in love, and friendship. She lived her life doing everything she did at 100%. She was my friend but she was also my hero.

She waged a war on cancer, if anyone could win I knew it would be Teri. I am  incredibly sad to share that Teri lost her long battle with cancer this weekend. My friend is gone and I wish she could help me find the words. She always helped me when I was in a creative rut. I need her now.  -lisa grey

Help Celebrate Teri’s life and the life of her mother Sonia who passed recently.
Please join the family for food, drink, and the the sharing of memories in honor 
of two great women.

May 13th from 1-4
at the Branford Yacht Club

Donations can be made to Smilow Cancer Hospital in lieu of flowers.
