Thank you for everything you did for me at Cheshire Academy.
You are missed.

I was a student at Cheshire Academy from 2000-2004. During my time at the academy, I had a few struggles (as most adolescents do) and Duff was always there to lend a helping hand. Duff and Bobbi have had a profound influence on my life and are the reason that I am a child/family therapist today. Hearing of Duffs passing came as a shock. Sending prayers to Bobbi and the rest of the family for strengths and sunshine during this difficult time.

Duff and I worked together at Stonington Institute. His kindness, compassion, goodness and sense of humor were greatly appreciated. He was a good man, this world has been blessed because of him.

Mr. Chambers was one of the greatest people I know, and the greatest councilor I've ever had. The time I spent in his office, talking to him of his past was some of the best I've had. It pains me to know that those times are all I have now. He pulled me out of a deep depression, then inspired me to do the same for others.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Duff had the biggest heart of anyone I know. Even in retirement he continued to care for people and be a good friend to all. You will be missed Duff. Personally, I appreciate all of the help you gave me as I tried to fill your shoes at Cheshire Academy. Heartfelt sympathy to Bobbi. The Cheshire Academy community is mourning with you.

Dear Bobbie-
I was so sorry to hear about the sudden passing of Duff. Even at the end, he was doing what he loved to do and what he was so good at. He touched so many lives even in the short time that I knew him. I have very fond memories of both of you. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. Karen Smith (CA)

Jamie and Veronica, We are so sorry to hear of your loss. May good memories keep him close forever.

My prayers go out to Bobbie and your children, James and Sarah. God Bless. RIP Duff. You were a good person and will be missed.
