I'm am at a loss for words. I have known Duane since the early 80s when I was still in high school and frequenting the computer lab in Alden Library. In the mid-90s, we became neighbors and friends. One could not ask for a better neighbor or friend. He was also willing to lend a helping hand, a kind word when I was in distress, and often helped take care of my pets when I was out of town.
To Mary Jo, Michael, Matthew, David, and Megan: I can't imagine the loss you are dealing with. My parents and I can only offer our condolences for your loss. We will miss him so much.
