To Duane's entire family,
A prior appointment will keep me from the visitation, but please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I remember Duane, Dean, Arlan and Mickie in my growing up years in Milan.I believe LeRoy was already married and living away. I'll think of you with fond memories. Rest in peace, Duane.
