To: Jenni, and all who know Duane. We have all been gifted by knowing Duane's sincere friendship and love. A man who focused on what he could due to help, no matter the situation. A man with a friendly smile for all who he came in contact with. A man that will surely be missed by all. Rest in peace my good friend.

Dear Jenn, I can honestly say I have known both your parents all my life and have many childhood memories of spending time with them and doing some traveling. They were great friends to my parents and I have many happy memories with them too. Sorry I was unable to make your Dad's service but will be thinking of you in the next few weeks. Cheryl
