  4. My condolences to the whole Duckering family on Terry’s passing. I enjoyed golfing with Terry at the Elks and appreciated him including me in his weekend bookings. Perhaps my Dad, who Terry played hockey with, and he are talking hockey and looking forward to golfing together again. I can’t make the service but my thoughts will be with you.

    I am so very sorry for the loss you feel with Terry’s passing. I had the pleasure of meeting Terry at The Tom Baker Cancer Centre when I had started working there 12 years ago. We struck up a close bond and this continued for many years. I so enjoyed talking to him and admired his strength as he would go through his treatments. It has been a long road for him but thank God he is now free from pain and in a much better place. Blessings to you the family on this tremendous loss.
