To each member of the Duke family, my heart shares your loss. I know how close-knit the family is and how much all loved your husband, father, or grandfather. Also, I raise my hand to salute one of the Greatest Generation for his service to our country during war and for his continued service to family, community and friends. Needless to say, there will be an empty chair during family gatherings. But, he is now resting with his Lord and looking down on those whom he loved. Bless all of you.
