  6. Duane was a great family man. To all of his family, particularly his children, I convey my heartfelt sympathies. I was Duane’s attorney for a number of years and he was one of the people I missed when I “retired” for the last 4 1/2 years and just went back to practicing a month ago. I wish I had had a chance to let him know as he had a good heart when it came to his kids. Jim Wagner

  7. To the Randall Family. You have my sympathies! I always enjoyed a good conversation with “jug” if we were uptown having a cold one. Keep your memories of him close, to help you get through these tough days ahead. Leo Dowd

  8. Mr Wilson, he was one of the best neighbors a person could have. I always called him Mr Wilson and he called me Dennis. He would watch when I would come home form work, walk over to our front deck and say Dennis you home. All I could see was the top of his hat. We had a lot of fun in that year we lived next to each other. Rest in peace my friend and thank you for the good time.

  9. Only got to know you a short while but got to know & enjoy having a cold one with you & our dad you will be missed!!

  10. Please accept our sincere condolences. May the words quoted from this song bring you a measure of comfort as it did for us.
    ”If a man or woman should die, can they live again?
    Hear the promise God has made:
    He will call; The dead will answer.
    They shall live at his command.
    For he will have a longing
    For the work of his own hand.
    So have faith, and do not wonder,
    For our God can make us stand.
    And we shall live forever,
    As the work of his own hand ”(Job 14:13-15)
