Uncle Duane always put a smile on my face - I dearly loved him. He sold us our first boat which we nicknamed the "pumpkin" - and we have so many great moments in that boat fishing and having fun like I know he would have wanted us to. God Bless you Uncle Duane - I will truly miss you and your fantastic laugh and sense of humor. Thanks for always teasing me - because I secretly loved it!

Dear family and friends, I am so deeply sorry to hear about your loss. Duane will be missed, but not forgotten because Jesus' words found at (John 5:28,29) says there will be resurrection. So what this mean is that Duane will be given a fresh new start without sickness and death (Rev. 21:4) with the prospect of living forever in a peaceful new world. (Psalms 37:29) I hope these promises found in the Bible bring comfort knowing that you have an opportunity to see him again to share more wonderful times together.
