So sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry for your loss. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. It's difficult losing a parent, but just remember all the good times you shared with him and know he's probably still watching over you.

Having been best of friends (Patrick) and I was like a 2nd family... I’ve crossed paths with many people over the last 51 years and my only regret is not having more time to visit with (you and your family). Your father was a pillar to many and I can’t possibly express my sorrow in your the loss of Mr. Klehr. I vaguely remember being at church many years ago with the family and know everyone will be reunited eventually. Live life as your dad raised you and you can’t go wrong. I’d surely like to come out Friday (maybe I can get there by 8pm) and personally pay my respect.

I am so sorry about Terry. He will be missed by so many. I will always remember our corvette trips and our laughs. Prayers to the Klehr family. I will miss him terribly. He is now with the angels watching over his family and friends. If there is anything you need please call me.

I am so sorry for the loss of Terry. The last time I saw him was at lunch in Lake Geneva. Terry and Diann both stood up to my wedding and were good friends with my wife Andrea. I am sure both will be meeting up at this time. My condolences to the Klehr family.

Condolences to you Diann and your family. It was fun talking to Terry at the Union Special retirement luncheons. I’m glad to have known him for 60 years. Sorry I can’t attend the service since I am in Florida. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

My condolences to Diann, Mike, Ryan, Patrick and Tim and to the entire family. Terry will be missed. I wish I had spent more time with him after learning we had similar passions (bowling & corvettes). I wish I was given the chance to get to know him better. It is unfortunate our family's had drifted over the years. It was great that Denise, Colin and I got to visit Terry and you guys while we still lived nearby. Currently, we live in the Tampa/St Pete area but I hope to visit Chicago this year or else we would have attended the funeral. Perhaps we might get together? My father enjoyed his days with Terry and will also miss him as does my mom. My parents would have attended the funeral but my father just underwent hip surgery and cannot drive yet. Let's keep in touch so that another 20 years does not lapse between visits. Just a thought.....
