  1. Dad
    You gave a good fight right to the end. A true stubborn Dutchman that was loved by many.
    I know you hate Frank Sinatra but I think it’s totally appropriate to send you off with “my way”. Rest in peace old man. I love you.

    We zullen je missen
    We misten je in Holland al 55 jaar
    We zullen je missen op Skype
    We zullen je complottheorieën en je humor missen
    We zullen je altijd herinneren met veel liefde

  5. What can we say. John Ter Wiel – devoted family man & dear friend. Every time we hear Buffalo Soldier we remember his unique, aaaamazing dance moves & sense of fun. The Dutch way brought so much joy into our lives. It’s soothing to know he is now reunited with his soul mate & watch out Heaven! John, you taught us so much & broadened our life experience. We missed you dearly when you left Invergowrie, but you gave us an opportunity to experience the Sunshine Coast like never before. Yet another adventure because of you & Irma. Your adventurous spirit, hard work ethic & ability to turn your hand at anything was inspiring. You live forever in our hearts. With our deepest condolences to Irma, Michael, Martin, Jane, Frits, Bets & their loved ones. We are so sorry not to be there tomorrow to support your final farewell, but we will be thinking of you & there in spirit.
    With all our love & gratitude for having the Ter Wiel’s in our lives, Garry & Muriel xxxxx
