"To the Durning Family, Although 7 months late, (just got back online), I wanted, nay Needed to extend my condolences on the passing of your BELOVED DAD. You do not know me, your Dad was one of my FAVORITE ACTORS. GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU MOURN YOUR LOVING DAD. I watched the Tribute of him & the other WWII Vets on Nat. Memorial Day Concert & could tell how TRULY SPECIAL he was to all of you. Although I am about your ages, 50, he reminds me of my Grandfathers both. He is RESTING IN OUR FATHER's LOVING HANDS. May he rest in Peace."
