Not sure what to say?

It broke
our hearts
to lose
you,
You did not
go alone,
For part
of us
went with
you,
The day
God called
you home.

The picture of the flag is a special flag.
It was the first flag to fly at half staff on 9/11/2001.
Flight #11 hit the N. Tower at 8:46 A.M.
United Air Flight 175 hit the S. Tower at 9:03 A.M.
American Air Flight 77 hit the Pentagon at 9:37 A.M.
The flag was lowered at 9:48 A.M. United Air Flight 93 crashed in Shanksville, PA at 10:03 A.M.
The flag was removed when President Bush decided to invade Iraq and hasn't been flown again until your unbearable passing...

Special flag flying at half staff in honor of you, Duke. This flag was the first one in the country to be lowered at half staff on 9/11.

The home you grew up in

Your oldest son, Noah, his wife Carina and your only grandson, Gavin

I miss you so much, little brother! Life is not fair. You are gone way too soon. You spent so much time helping everyone else. I will always wonder if you knew you had heart trouble, or if this was sudden. You were so kind, helpful, selfless, loving, caring . . . I can't believe I will never talk with you again, or see you again. You loved your family so much (and we loved you) and we will all miss you tremendously.

When we were all happy.
Love you, Mom

Duke, you were loved so much by your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. We had so much fun as kids living next door on Sweepstakes Rd.
