South Deshon Congregation in Stone Mountain, Ga. sends you their love. I have followed the family's ordeal for months and I am very touched by the love shown in this family, but I am not surprised. We look forward to seeing Terrell and all the family members in the new system.

Dear Starks Family,

I too am so very sorry for your loss. I have not had the pleasure of meeting you, and I did not have the pleasure of meeting Terrell, but his story was remarkable and I am moved to write this. Thank you for sharing it and educating the community about Sickle Cell. Under such distress and unimaginable pain, your family has been able to endure this dual tragedy. To be able to withstand such emotional trauma twice makes it very clear to me that Jehovah, The God of All Comfort, is with you and providing you with strength and power beyond what is normal. Your story is faith strengthening. Pain and suffering is so unnatural and there are so many diseases that ravish our bodies and cut precious life short. I was reminded recently that death is for a certainty an enemy. So, I know you cherish the day when mourning will be done away with and you will be able to welcome both children back in perfect health. Until that day, I will pray that the God of All Comfort strengthen and console you as you heal.

Your Sister,

Dear Friends,

Im very sorry for your loss. The pain of death's "sting," can be unbearable. I pray that our heavenly father give you the strength to endure the pain. Im confident that he will. Continue to rely on him, you have been through so much it seems. I wish that I could have met Terrell. I found your story very inspiring. I look forward to meeting him in God's new world, where he will be ressurected. Much love to you and your family and may you hold and cherish all of the good memories until you see him again.
June 01, 2010
To the Starks Family: I have been following your story in the Courier and have been unable to get your family out of my mind. I cannot imagine losing not one but two children to this horrible disease. You have a beautiful family and your support for your son Terrell was incredible. May God bless you all and be with you during this sad time. I will continue to pray for you all. Your family is an inspiration.
May 31, 2010
I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you
May 31, 2010
We are so sorry for all of your pain.
Know that thoughts and prayers are with Terrell and his loving family.
Rest in peace Terrell, you will live on in the hearts of many.
May 31, 2010
I am so sorry your children had to go home before you both. Terrell said something in one of his videos about other children taking their life for granted. I will tell my children about Terrell and his sister and children like them when they are a little older to understand. Our children can be taken before us at any time. Your story helps me to appreciate what God has given me. I hope your family finds peace in your childrens' memories as you continue to serve your purpose here on earth. Thank you for you story and you should know it has touched my life. God bless you all. I truly believe both Terrell and Dominique will see you through this life until you meet again.
May 31, 2010
Lisha, Carl, and Cortez words cannot adequately express how I am feeling right now. I am so sorry that I could not be there on Saturday to provide additional support and love for you all. The last time I saw you all was in 2005 and I have followed your story of hope, love, and family through Nita and Demond. I love you all and I will see you soon. Just knowing that we are living in the last days and we have the heavenly hope that you will see your wonderful son and beautiful daughter again, warms my heart. I love you all......... your cousin Jackie
May 30, 2010
My dear Brother and Sister and Cortez- My heart hurts for you. We are so blessed to have the hope of the resurrection but we still miss our loved ones when we lose them in death and when it's a child, the pain must be so deep. You are in my prayers. We are seeing so much suffering as the end comes closer and closer. I know our loving Father, Jehovah appreciates that you took your small babies and taught them the Truth. I can only imagine the joy on the day you will receive both your babies back. May Jehovah bless you and keep you safe in His love...Your Sister
May 30, 2010
To the Starks Family:
May Jehovah God continue to strengthen you in this very difficult time. We all look forward to seeing our loved ones in the new system as Jehovah has promised. We will keep you in our prayers. Continue to trust in Jehovah.
May 30, 2010
My deepest sympathy to your family. Thank you for sharing Terrell with us, and putting a face on this horrible disease. Until reading your story and watching the vidio, Sickle Cell was only something I read about in a book. Terrell did important work by bringing it to life. Sincerely in Sympathy
May 30, 2010
I am very sorry for your lost, and I do understand and feel your pain. I have been working with a Sickle Cell
Foundation in the western part of the state. My prayers are with you. Terrell now walks in perfect health, with God.
May 30, 2010
My Dear Friends,
Please allow me to express my deep feelings of regret that your son and brother, my brother in the Truth, Terrell, has been forced to leave us. His story has touched me on an unusually deep level, whereas I normally keep a battlefield mentality that says I must wait until the battle is over to lick my wounds. I wish there was something I could have done. Now I can only pray that I meet death with the courage that he displayed, and that I be blessed with the assignment to return him to you. May Jehovah bless you with peace and comfort as you continue the fine fight to the end.
May 29, 2010
I read your story with sadness and tears. I pray that Jehovah give you strength and courage to help you through the grief.
Your sister in the faith
May 29, 2010
May you have the joy that we yet wait for, walk hand in hand with the Lord.
May 29, 2010
Your story was very touching and your family is very strong. May God bless Terrell and your family.

You have lost a precious son, my heart was broken by your story.I want you to know it changed the way I think about life. I want to be more like you.
May 28, 2010
The angels must have requested,
someone to brighten up their day.
So GOD called Terrell home,
in heaven now he stays.
With opened arms they welcomed him,
so glad that he is there.
Without hesitation, God held Terrell in prayer.
As the gates opened up,and the angels began to sing,
I bet Terrell smiled,
when GOD gave him. his wings.
So when you look upon a flower,
or a rainbow in the sky.
That's your child letting you know,
he's right there by your side.
I know it must of been very hard to let him go.
For you were truly blessed,
with a son that loved you so...

To the Starks Family,

Mrs. Starks you are a strong wonderful mother.You showed awesome amounts of courage while taking care of such a brave handsome young man.You and Terrell have blessed many people with your story.

I just want you to know that you are a role model for young mother's like me and Terrell was blessed to have a mother like you... They say our children pick their parents and I know Terrell was glad he picked you... Much love Stacy Coles

May 26, 2010
To the Starks family. My heart and prayers are with you. This story hits close to home for me, I lost my very best friend to this disease several years ago and growing up with her I never even knew how serious the disease was until she passed. There is very little light or information shed on this disease. Thanks for sharing your story. Your son had remarkable strength and faith and when I read his story it makes me know that I have nothing to complain about. Life is too short and most of us spend all our days complaining about things that don't really matter. God Bless your family and I will pray for your strength and when I start to let the seeds of doubt and despair creep up on me, I will remember your son's legacy. Thanks for sharing your story. God is with you!
May 26, 2010
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

To the Starks family: Thank you for allowing so many people to learn from your courage, and showing us what is important in life.

To the Starks family.
I have been following this story daily and I thank you for sharing this precious and private part of your life. It has helped me and I'm sure many other people to cling closer to loved ones while we can,to be thankful for the refuge we have in Christ, and most of all to bring awareness to this disease that plagues our people. God knows all and sees all and will not forsake us.
It is my sincere prayer and belief, God has prepared a place for us all and you will see Terrell again as well as your daughter. May God add a sense of peace beyond your imagination that only He can give. R.I.P Terrell.

The Terrell Starks story lifted so many hearts and support to help fight the sickle cell disease. Terrell endured so much suffering, yet he strived to breathe another day without complaining. No more suffering Terrell. Truly, this family has demonstrated their strength comes from the hand of God.

I have been praying for Terrell and your family since I found out about his condition. You see it hits home because my daughter has Sickle Cell Disease as well. I prayed for your son's strength and courage to allow God to take over his body and spirit. From the interviews and photos your son was and still is amazing fighter. Those seeds he planted were actually his seeds of faith. I thank you for allowing the world to see your son and to learn from his struggle not shake our heads and keep going the other way.Keeping you in my prayers Mr & Mrs Starks and Big Brother Starks...

I had the privilege of viewing a news video of an interview with Terrell. I felt a great love for the young man instantly. He epitomized the human spirit, all the while as he strained to answer the questions submitted to him. As a great grandfather I saw the beauty that is patent in all young men and I appreciated what I saw. Rest assured that the first few verses of Revelation 21 will come to fruition. Jehovah God loves us all, and especially ones like your dear son. You have the opportunity to see him again in the resurrection that God has promised through the merits of his son.

We are our brothers keepers and I pray God sends his comforter to love and support you during this time of sorrow; keep the faith.
