  2. I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort your mourning hearts. I pray that you find comfort in Revelation 21:3-5. This scripture paints a picture of a world that is very different from what we see today. A world with no more sickness, pain or death…and it is not a dream, it is a promise from God. He promises to reverse the effects of death and resurrect your precious Duane. You will never have to say a painful goodbye ever again!

  3. May the Lord Bless you you and keep you, may the Lord make His face to Shine upon you and be gracious to you, May the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace. Num 6:24-26. Our prayers and hearts go with you all.

  4. Very sorry to hear of your loss. Duane was a very special person. His presence at church never failed to bring a smile to my face, either through his sense of humor or something positive to pass along. We will miss him in this world!
