Carol and Rich Root
Peace be with you as fellow member of GUMC Seekers class and friends.
We send prayers and much love to the Dukes in this difficult time. Our family has wonderful memories of Mr. Duke and remember him for his generosity of spirit and warm sense of humor.
To the Duke family: It was a pleasure meeting and talking with Mr Duke and sharing the bond as Marines. Please allow the fact the "He lived a life that mattered" be your comfort. Praying that the God of all comfort will comfort you in the days to come. Semper Fi!
Leiland was a delight to know. He was one of the most studious people I have ever met. He loved learning and was passionate about staying as sharp in as possible in many endeavors, especially in aviation. I am proud to have known him, I am proud to have been a friend; I will miss his pleasant, pragmatic and engaging personality, especially out at the airport. We send our deep, heartfelt condolences to his wonderful family.
