    Thoughts are with you all. Been there, done that with losing my Dad too. After you’ve had some time to shed a few tears and come to grips with Duane’s passing make sure you take the time to smile and share a lot of laughs too! Celebrate his life! The years I spent working with Duane were some of the dirtiest, nastiest jobs, but you know what? We always ended up laughing about it at the end of the day. Your Dad was SO good to us young guys that were learning the ropes. He was always patient and kind and willing to take the extra minute to show us the proper ways. I’m smiling just writing this. Celebrate!

    Peace to you all!

    Your family is in my prayers. Duane was perhaps my favorite “Father of a friend.” He called me from the road when I lived in Washington and I was so homesick. May he rest in peace.
