Its really hard to lose such a wonderful friend..i dont know Duane but i know how wonderful he is because of the way his friends talk about him. I wish I could have known him because I 'm sure he would have been a ray of sunshine to me like he IS to everyone he knows. Well I guess we need guys like Duane to get heaven ready for the rest of us..you will all see him again..believe that! I do. GOD BLESS YOU DUANE AND ALL OF YOUR FAMILY AND LOVING FRIENDS!

I'm sorry this is almost 4 years late. It's been a long journey without you as my guide, and hard to accept. You were always more to me than I think I ever let on to you. You are the most beautiful person I have ever met. The last time we talked I think was just a few days before you passed. I can't wait for the day we get to finish our conversation. You still visit me often as a laugh, smile, or just a lump in my throat or a tear. Until then
love you always,

I can't believe it's been over a year already. I miss Duane so much still and when I think about how he confided in me about things, and how I confided in him about things, it breaks my heart. I wish he were still here and I wish that him and I had had a chance to get together one last time. We kept trying to get together for coffee or lunch or a movie but we were just "too busy". I still remember the last time I really saw and hung out with Duane. It was at Kory's 21st birthday party and Duane and I and a few others had talked about going to a foam party and dancing through the night. We never got to and I wish that we had. I'll never forget Duane, he was a great friend and I love him still dearly. So many more memories of him.....so little time.

My dear, beautiful, unforgettable Duane,

How is it possible? A year and a day? I've avoided doing this as I don't feel I can accurately describe in words what you've meant to me, and continue to mean to me. You were my best friend, and when so suddenly you were gone, I was so lost.

This year has been one of infinite unmeasurable growth for me. I've re-learned to love, and found so much of the beauty that you saw in this life. I've made new friends, and gotten rid of ennemies. I am thankful daily for the beautiful relationship I have been blessed to build with your parents. I've moved on, but you are such a part of me every day.

My friend, my soulmate, I still miss you. :-) I suppose that doesn't make you happy to hear, but I do. And I hope, daily, that someday I'll find you again, somewhere else, where you're happier than here.

Love you always,

Greg Josephs

I did not know Duane very well at all, but the short amount of time I did know him he was awesome! We were in Microeconomics together and I remember us sitting together and studying for the final. He was a happy person and brought a lot of joy to the people who were close to him. I know he is missed terribly and I miss him even though he was not a big part of my life. May he rest in peace.

I realize this entry is late and I apologize. I've had a hard time bringing myself to writing out how I feel about Duane. He was the kindest guy I have ever known. He could bring a smile to your face even on your darkest days. Duane will never be forgotten, he has touched too many lives for that to happen. I will miss you Duane and Goddess bless.

You know its funny how one can laugh and cry at the same time. We lost an amazing man, someone who has impacted many through the course of his life. Today at the memorial we heard stories about the different aspects of who Duane was. For me what I will remember most is he was always himself, always smiling, always caring, always unpredictable. He was sure of himself and made a difference. I know I am better man for having known Duane. I will miss you Duane.

When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me. It means that even after I die, you can still see my face and hear my voice and speak to me in your heart.

I never met Duane but I have heard much about him. I work at the Tennyson Center for Children. Hearing stories from the staff and kids that he has touched, I am grateful that my collegues and these children were touched by such a wonderful young man. My sympathies to you. Be reassured that he has a special seat in heaven.

I have been a friend of the family for numerous years and have known Duane from when he was very small. He was always a bright, smiling, winsome child and adult. I will always feel a part of me is missing. He had such empathy and a way with people. He will be missed greatly by all who were lucky enough to know him. My thoughts, love and prayers to his family.

I just wanted to say how lovely I thought the memorial service on Saturday was. Duane was a wonderful young man who touched many broken lives here at Colorado Christian Home. I sincerely enjoyed having him here and although I did not spend much time with him, he started each day off with a smile, I enjoyed greeting him every morning. It is also obvious that he touched many people along the way and I was enlightened and enchanted by the reflections that people shared about Duane. He was very special, you all should be very proud. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

My two sons, Jason and Nick Eubank, knew Duane well. Duane was at our home numerous times with Kory and Shattuck, and he was a wonderful young man. In fact, he got Jason started making chain-mail, something Jason still does. I know Jason and Nick both would want me to extend their condolences to you. You made them welcome in your home many times when the boys were all at Regis. Duane was so friendly and warm and caring. He was very comfortable sitting and chatting with me, something that I always enjoyed. God bless you all and if there is anything I can do for you, please don't hesitate to ask.
Most sincerely,
Kathy Eubank

I have known Duane for almost a year now. We've never physically met, but he's always been there for me with his kind words and voice that just made you smile and see everything good in life. He will always be in my heart and I miss him so much. He was a good friend and a natually caring guy. R.I.P Duane.
