I am so sorry for your loss and saddened to hear this news. I only knew your dad from the blog world but I admired him and will miss him. Some time ago I think he posted something about taking a leave from blogging for a bit due to health reasons but I had no idea it was so serious. I wish I had checked on him. Again, I am very sorry.

Adrian,

I found this blog yesterday as I was confirming Terry's address. I'm so sorry for your families loss. Your dad touched many lives and was a wonderful influence to a lot of people. The first day we moved to Malden he came over to help us with our broken garage door. Living among that group of people while raising our kids was a magical time I'll never forget and always treasure.


One of my favorite memories was the day Ardy and I proclaimed Roy Orbison Days and hung a banner across the front porch of Terry and Chris's house. It was the day of the block party and Terry and I had been battling for years over listening to Roy or The Art of Noise. We got up early to hang it because we wanted him to see it as he picked up his newspaper that morning. Watching him see the banner, start laughing and looking around is just one of many fond memories I have of him.

Take care. Gina

Dear Adrian and family,
I have been following Terry's blog for a couple years. He was always a thoughtful and reasonable voice on so many issues, including schools, health care, and these senseless wars. I wish I had checked in on him, as I had no idea he was in such ill health. I didn't know Terry personally but I wish I had. My prayers and thoughts are with your family. You are blessed to have a strong, wise father whose legacy will live on.

Adrian, thanks for posting this. To you and your family, my deepest condolences.

Terry was a critical influence in getting me to start blogging about Portland Public Schools. He was always supportive and encouraging, even while he was literally fighting for life.

He was larger than life, and I am richer for having known him.

Adrian,
My thoughts are with you and your family. Your father's writings on politics and the forum he provided here taught me and countless others a lot. Thank you for letting us know. I will write more soon.

Here is the service information from the Oregonian:

I am so sorry for your loss.

My condolences for your loss. I will miss the back and forth with your father, who was a Mensch.

A wonderful man he was.

This is a loss not only for your family but for the whole city, as Terry had so many important things to say about local issues, especially education. He will be sorely missed. Please accept my sympathy for your loss.

I will miss Terry's insightful writing. It was something I always looked forward to reading. I am so sorry for your loss.

Portland's children and citizens have lost a true friend and voice for equity.

Terry, I miss you. I admire you so much - your passion, dedication, kindness, reason and intellect.

May you rest in peace, and may your family be comforted by knowing what a positive impact you have made in the lives of all you have touched - including the children you so actively advocated for.

Your work lives on. Your life lives on.

I love you.

Adrian, my heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Terry was a wonderful person and will indeed be missed. Thank you, Terry, for your passion, intellect, and eloquence in the service of social justice and peace.

Very amusing topic about this topic, but still this confusion is to complicate to discuss.That is why we have controlled to create a custom writing service to help hopeful students. They can buy term paper that is custom and made by professional , buy custom essay papers
or even buy research paper. But when customers use this kind of business – an ethical question is raised: Is it ok to use these kinds of services? Is it ok to use them, and will you be punished for using them.

There are many collections available for acquiring an education these days,you can buy term papers or buy research paper which is perfect news for those who have not yet controlled. As for me, essays writing is not an easy production so try make right determination between composing on yor own or to buy essay about this topic. Maybe you need help with unique investigation , maybe you want help in producing a fresh hand on a topic that is vast and complex.

With the purpose to preclude the failures in the dissertation work, that can be much better to buy the best release associated with this good post at the thesis writing service in Internet. This is easier to get the PhD taking that way.

Dear Adrian, the way you write your posts impressed me a lot! I wish I could write so good as you do. I think you are an inborn writer. Don’t you want to try yourself in a writing service? I am sure you will succeed.

That was an inspiring post.

Obviously,it is hard to live without that one whom you love so much as you mentioned above about your DAD who has passed by.thanks for posting this. To you and your family, my deepest condolences.

Terry was a critical influence in getting me to start blogging about Portland Public Schools. He was always supportive and encouraging, even while he was literally fighting for life.

The loan seem to be important for people, which would like to start their own organization. As a fact, that's comfortable to get a sba loan.
