Our thoughts & prayers are with you. May God bless & sustain you & grant you strength, courage, peace, grace, serenity & a strong faith. One "glorious day" we shall all meet on that "Golden Shore", what a "Reunion" that will be!! Matthew 10:30 says that every hair on our heads are numbered & Ecclesiastes 3 says that there is a time & a place & a reason & a season for everything under the Heavens & God is in control!! Our names are written in God's book & we must wait upon the Lord. When such traumatic things happen it is so difficult, as the not knowing, but you must leave it in God's hands, as He is the only one that has the answers. When we get to Heaven, in God's timing we will have all the answers, but until then you must put closure to it & let Duane be your ".guardian angel". Nobody knows what it is like until they walk in your moccasins!! When I lost my son & he was in Oklahoma & hit & killed by a tractor-trailer, we never learned the circumstances, but we will when we reach Heaven & he has been gone fo nearly fifteen years. God gives you the grace to get thru. You never get over it, you just get thru it by the grace of our Lord & Savior. Be strong in the Lord!! He will prevail!! The spirit is eternal & Duane's spirit will forever be with you in every bright, shining star & every beautiful, colorful rainbow & in the clouds & the moon & the sun.
God bless, comfort & cherish you with all your precious memories to hold near & dear to your hearts!! We send our love!!

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,unseen,unheard,but always near,still loved,still missed and very dear.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,love leaves a memory no one can steal.

To my one & only : the person who has taught me as much as i know today, the best memories that i will hold in my heart, roller skating will never be the same but i can now take all the little things and show to my son and future children. My heart aches as i will never understand many things but god has gained a wonderful, loving, caring person. I love you dad till we meet again. You own me a hug & kiss???? xoxo you're daughter

As a fond mother, when the day is o'er,
Leads by the hand her little child to bed,
Half willing, half reluctant to be led,
And leave his broken playthings on the floor,
Still gazing at them through the open door,
Nor wholly reassured and comforted
By promises of others in their stead,
Which, though more splendid, may not please him more;
So Nature deals with us, and takes away
Our playthings one by one, and by the hand
Leads us to rest so gently, that we go
Scarce knowing if we wish to go or stay,
Being too full of sleep to understand
How far the unknown transcends the what we know.
