I am passing on some not so great news to all of his friends, fans and fellow racers that Dick has fallen ill. Jan , his wife and I knew that there are so many of you that would want to know that he is very sick and hospitalized at this time with serious bacterial meningitis. He is not able to have visitors or take any phone calls or flowers. Please respect the families privacy. I am posting on here because he is one of this boards best supporters and I know many of his friends check this site and it is a great way to let you all know.
Dick is my best friend, hero and confidant and I believe with all my heart he will come through this well. Please help me in wishing him well and get better soon. When he is able to see this I know it will lift his spirits. Thank you so much for keeping him in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you all so very much.

Rick Terry......... sorry Shawna

Best wishes for a speedy recovery to one of the all-time great men and racers of the Northwest. Certainly someone that has helped my career on more than one occasion over the years. Feel better soon Dick.

Wanted to let you all know that your thoughts and prayers have went a long way. This morning Dick awoke, is coherent and pissed off. If you know Dick that means he is somewhat normal and is a great thing. He is progressing but is still very sick. He still can not have visitors or phone calls but is on the journey to recovery. He is really going to love seeing your notes here so keep up the good work and prayer for him. Jan, Shawna, myself and my wife know that it is working and so appreciate it. We know there is a ton of love for him. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. You can also leave him a PRIVATE MESSAGE on this site or send him an email if you know it. His name on here is...drifter56w

Jan,Shawna,Rick & Sandi Terry

So I understand Dick has been moved to a place where he can read his emails, private messages and this thread. If you haven't already, send him a get well - it means quite a bit.

Just spoke at length with Dick and wanted to let everyone know how it warms his heart to see all your well wishes. He is progressing slowly but has a long way to go. Your thoughts and prayers are going to continue lifting his spirits. We hope to get him home asap and will keep updaing you all on his progress. Thank you all.

Awesome to see you online! We've only met when you signed my Sky Valley and Skagit programs. Watched you race many years and always rooted for you. Then rooted for your cars.

Keep getting better!!!!!!!!

Dick was released yesterday and resting at home comfortably. Spent the day with him today and he is coming along. Going to take a few months to recover but with forward progress made in baby steps he will bounce back I am sure. He really thanks all of you for the well wishes. Keep it up. Do what the doc says and get better my friend. See you Friday.

Jeff,

Thanks for checking on my recovery. I am getting better day by day in baby steps. Still going to be a long road I fear. Thank the good Lord for my family and all of the prayers and well wishes from my friends.

You all have helped me through this ordeal.

Love you all

Dick
