    My thoughts and prayers for the entire family. I fondly remember our times at Civil Air Patrol with Terry and Einar and their helpfulness to me when I was going through a rough time in my life. Their leadership was a great example to myself and others who worked with them.

    Sending our deepest condolence to the whole Olsen family. Einar and Terry were such a huge part of our growing up in Civil Air Patrol and we are blessed to have had them in our lives for so many years. We will miss Einar more than words can express. May his soul mount up with wings like eagles. May he rest in eternal peace.
