Duane was a kind,thoughtful person, full of fun. I remember a memorable Christmas party a few years back. He had 2 trees! One for Christmas, and another for New Years' that was decorated with party hats and noisemakers. He fussed over his little doggies and always worked hard at work and at home. He also possessed the gift of compassion. Rest in peace,Duane, you were a fine man.

Duane and I go back 40 years before and during his service years. Although we didn't personally keep in touch -- I wish sometimes that we had! I knew Duane's Grandma, Mrs. Powell Hartman (as she always said). She lived a block away from my parents house. Duane must have gotten his love of beautiful flowers from her. She kept me in touch with Duane's happenings until she passed away. My deepest sympathy goes out to your soul mate. May God find a special place for you in his heavenly gardens!
