All Condolences -

We are so sorry to learn of Terje''s passing. He was a wonderful man, and the world is a little bit diminished now that he is gone. We have so many fond memories: sitting on the deck with a glass of wine discussing just about everything, the interest and encouragement he gave to our children, how he always teased about going back to school for my doctorate. Though time and distance took us away, we always thought fondly of him and will miss him. Our love to you, Ingrid, and your family.
