Carlisle, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughters.
Your dad was my Principle @ Dateland, he was a great man. Your Uncle Carlisle was my 7th grade teacher @ Dateland.
Who would of thought years down the road, your mom Billie would be my Supervisor @ 1st National Bank in Coachella, Ca. (The only bank at that time)
Having you as a CoWorker completed the circle on my history with the Duke Family. My sister Roni had worked @ bank and she told me I would love working with your mom, and she was right.
I had the privilege to sit and talk to your dad a few years ago at office.
It brought so many great memories. I am blessed to have spent that time with Mr B Duke.
He reminded me to never forget who I am, my family history and the friendshipsboth your mom & dad had with my parents.
Dad is now the Security Guard @ bank.
Be strong and remember B&B are in heaven dancing the night away.
