Duane and Edna were close friends, and he shot his first deer on our farm. He also was into woodworking, and we use the coat rack he made for us every day. He also made us a birdhouse, and I know he really enjoyed woodworking. We also cherish the numerous times we celebrated New Years together. Duane was a great father and always put his family first. We miss Duane already, and I know that Edna will appreciate everyone's support during this difficult time.
