Dearest Kathy and family, It was truly a divine intervention which caused our paths to cross. First, finding such a friend at "bowling" and then again to cross paths when Terry met David at chemo, Minnesota Oncology. It is strange how fate brings people together at times when a "connection" is a needed support in this very difficult life. I was especially happy that Terry and David had met and that David could give him some words of hope and keeping his sense of humor with all that was going on. Then, to have met and known each other, I am sure that David was at those gates to meet and greet him along with his own loved ones. Life can be so short, this piece of the journey is only a stepping stone to a much bigger picture and I am so glad that David and I had been able to meet and share a part of both your lives. God speed Terry on your journey and your destination, Kathy you and I will still have our adventures together and I hope we have many years ahead of us. It is so hard to fall into such grief, but it is so wonderful that we are left with so many memories which carry us through until our memories are not of this grief, but of all the wonderful things we shared in the time we had together. Our journey continues through time and who is to know all that shall pass before us.

Dear Kathy and Family,
It was greatly appreciated to see you and Terry at my fathers memorial as a I know his outings were very few.
It’s with tears of sadness and yet fond memories I recall many stories from my dad and Marcey...first hockey encounter with Pee-Wee, snowmobiling and the endless gatherings and good times shared. Most stories ending up with my dad laughing and “that damn Pee-Wee. “
I have a vision that floods me with warmth- Terry has been greeted with wide open arms sitting at a bar with a drink for each and pull tabs. Two Amigos...cheers and catching up.

With my deepest sympathy for your loss,
Natalie Olson

Kathy, and family, I'm so sorry to read of Terry's passing. I first met him when I was about 12 years old and we all hung out at Wilder playground. We used to ride around with my mom in her '49 Dodge coupe, all crammed together in there, and hanging out with Russ Radloff, Terry and Russ looking like Mutt and Jeff. My prayers are with you and your family and especially with Terry.

Until we meet again, my friend

Russ and I are still stunned to hear about Terry's passing. How many times in your life do you wish you had made a plan to get together and then this happens. We wish we had followed through in seeing Kathy & Terry through the years far more then we ever did. Russ has always felt family when it came to the Peyers growing up, Terry, George and Arnie were a big part of his life. Hold your memories and hug your loved ones. Kathy please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. We will miss you Terry

What a great person, he gave me the only nick name I’ve ever had.. and continued to use it well after I became a man. His hospitality was second to absolutely no one I’ve ever met.. Terry and Kathy were two of my favorite people growing up. As I shed many tears writing this, I smile thinking of the great experiences Terry and Kathy provided for me from the age of 7 to over 18..may Pee-Wee’s big adventure and that Indy 650 ride on forever!

I love you dearly Terry..

Dear Terry (Dad), you were one of a kind!! I loved your sense of humor and your irreverent attitude! You didn’t make excuses for who you were and if people didn’t like it well we all knew where they could go..... ha ha. It’s sad to see you go, but we all know you gave it your best effort and fought a good fight!! I have Lots of great memories of the times we all spent with you.... when we could get you to sit still!! I’m picturing you cruising along on your bike with Buddy up in Heaven!!! Love you Dad!!!
