Not sure what to say?

Wishing you were here through all these tough times. I love you and still think of you everyday.

Almost your birthday! Everyone still thinks about you.

Not a day goes by that I dont think of you. Youre always in my heart. I love you.

I loved spending time with Duane, I've never laughed so hard in my life when he was around. He was my business partner and someone I looked forward to seeing in the afternoons. The world lost a gentle soul and someone who would have given his life for his friends. Love you and miss you Duane.

Duane has taught me so many things in life, in fact he still does everyday. He is truly my angel. The best man I have ever know, he was taken away too soon but he will be in my heart and in my thoughts everyday.

Duane & I were best friends as kids. Went to the same elementary school, and lived next to each other for a few years. I'll never forget the fun we had as kids. Was finally able to reconnect a few years ago on Facebook and got to see what he did in the years after he moved away from San Diego. Rest in peace bud.

Only knew Duane for a short time but enjoyed working with him and will miss him.

You were my best friend. Anytime i was at my dads I would always ask oh can we go see duane or when we would go out I would ask if duane would be there. He was full of happiness and love. He taught me so many life lessons. When I would go to my dads work after a softball game he would ask and be appreciative and engaged in the conversation. Duane was amazing. I will miss you.
