So sad to hear the passing of Duck. She was a very special lady! When I was growing up on Rockett Rd. Duck used to walk every evening and I was blessed my mom let me walk with her then Dara Wooten started walking with us too. Duck, Dara and I had a ball we would sing and cut up and which ever way we walked we had I think 30 cents in our shoes we got a soda sat on the bench at store drank it then Duck would say come on girls let’s get it. Family we will be praying for all. Duck I love you and I’ll see you in Glory!!
