It is with a heavy heart that we release our son, Terrae O'Neal, back to his Heavenly Father. Terrae loved life and all people in it. He was a graduate of the Virginia School Programs: Wheatland Union High School in 2000, and Yuba College 2002. He was a US Olympic Torch Barrier for the Salt Lake Winter Games in 2002. Terrae also enjoyed his daily and weekly interactions with the staff and consumers at Sunshine Gardens in Marysville and Yuba Respite Programs. He loved: sports, good food, cooking shows, comedians, his custom van, dancing, outings, helping others and to laugh, laugh, laugh! He never knew a stranger. Terrae was a very spiritual man, he loved God, lived righteous life and always encouraged others to do what's right, good and whatever was best for them. The first thing he'd ask any one is "how is your day" and he'd expect an honest answer. Living with Cerebral Palsy and quadriplegia made life challenging and he rose to the challenge. He was not a disabled man, he was a very capable, hardworking, and loving man of integrity. He will live on with all of us through our memories and our mindful intention: to maintain his passion, compassion, love, light and spirit to do right by ourselves and others; through our peaceful interactions and openness to not only that which is like us but also that which is different. We love you Terrae!
