  • Reid & Terry

    All -

    As some of you may already know, longtime site member, Reidmct, lost his wife, Terry, to cancer August 19th.

    I was the beneficiary of their hospitality several times in Houston and the TX Hill Country and Terry was always a joy to be around and always took care of herself after everyone else.

    We are all here for one another as a needed distraction or as a help and comfort.

    Pegs down for Terry, and for our ZZR brother, Reid, in his pain.

          Sincere condolences, Reid.
          Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

                So sorry to hear of this.

                Our condolences Reid.
                I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

                        No words. Just good thoughts for healing.

                          Thank you all for your kind words. They are a comfort. I am still grieving deeply; devastated.

                          It took me a day to write her short memorial page for the funeral home, and another day to scrape together some photos. She was a photographer, so there are not many photos of her. She was beautiful inside and out.

                          Thanks for that photo, Chris. I hadn't seen it before; that was 2007, just after we built the motorcycle workshop and art studio.

                          Here's a link to her memorial page (click button to turn off the syrupy music). Video slideshow at the bottom doesn't do her justice; neither does the obit. She was a remarkable person, an innocent angel of service to all.


                          Here's a nice photo that isn't yet on the memorial video.

                          1. When asked for word associations or comments about the world, give the most conventional, run-of-the-mill, pedestrian answer possible.

                          2. To settle on the most beneficial answer to any question, repeat to yourself:
                          (a) I loved my father and my mother, but my father a little bit more.
                          (b) I like things pretty well the way they are.
                          (c) I never worry much about anything.
                          (d) I don't care for books or music much.
                          (e) I love my wife and children.
                          (f) I don't let them get in the way of company work.
