Betty Ann and family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Duane and you, Betty Ann, have always had a special place in Roger's and my hearts for your friendship and guidance when Roger was first starting his ministry. Kimberly and Kirk were such great kids. We see our loved ones face life's challenges and as they pass, have the assurance that they are in a better place with our God.

Betty Ann-Shocked and saddened to hear of Duane's passing. I have been concerned as you were not in attendance at the last couple gatherings of the Memory Cafe "family". Although our friendship has been brief I always felt like I have known you for years. My thoughts, prayers and sympathy are with you and your family. May God continue to comfort and uplift you now and in the days to come.
