My very old and dear friend, Duane....I have just learned of your untimely passing this evening. How I was not made aware, I have no clue. This saddens me greatly, and you will always be a part of some of my fondest high school memories. You were an awesome and amazing friend...always smiling, always laughing, and making it your priority to make sure that those around you were laughing as well...and could bring the sunlight back into the day of anyone who hadn't been able to find a smile on any given day until they crossed paths with you. I was blessed to have known you. I hope you are laughing up there while you're exploring heaven. To Duane's family, I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. I know such a wonderful friend to me, has to be a tragic and heart crushing loss to all of you. God bless you.
