To Janis and her daughters:
I was so very sorry to hear of Duane's passing. Duane and I were very close cousins growing up, my brothers and I spending countless hours at Uncle John's and Aunt Dorothy's house on 31st Street, and then the house outside of Rose Hill. Duane and I did so many things together. After I left the area once I got out of high school, I lost track of Duane. However, I know that he stayed very good frinds with my dad, his Uncle Bob, and I was so appreciative of that relationship. I know that you have many wonderful memories of your husband and father, and I know that you believe you will see him again, as I will. May God bless you and give you His peace!!
