  • To all of the family in Ohio,

    I send my love and prayers.

    I have only good memories of Uncle Duane. There was just something about his voice which, even at the thought of it now, makes me smile. He always seemed to have a joy from within which came from his faith in the Lord above. I am looking forward to that day when, after this earthly life is over, I get to stand beside Uncle Duane and the rest of our family in the presence of God.

    I love and miss you, Uncle Duane, and all of the rest of you who are still here. I love you all, and I will be praying for you.

  • Duane and all of us Ohneck cousins grew up together and were always so excited to see Duane and his family when they came to the Ft. Wayne area to visit. One fun time was over July 4, when we all crawled up into the big farm wagon, pulled by Bruce Ohneck my dad. We sang songs all the way to the fireworks (10 or so miles away) and then back to the farm. All our families were together, including l Duane’s parents and brothers and sister Pat. Duane was always thoughtful and very sweet and oh so cute. Handsome, really. I cherish that memory and now even more.
    Just think of all the family waiting to greet, to welcome him………….

  • So many memories as a child growing up with your family. Your whole family made me feel like I was one of your own. I felt a closeness there that I didnt always feel at home. From starting fires, breaking your daughters leg, borrowing your vehicle without permission to having someone to talk to about special things having a family surrounding me when I needed you most. He was a special man and you guys are a special family. I love you all and his memory will always stay with me. Thankyou for the times we shared . My prayers are with all.

  • I just want to tell my Mom my brother ‘s Brian and Joe and my sister Denise and all the grand kids that I LOVE YOU!! To some of us the reality has not sunk in and the grieving will continue for some time and I will be around if anyone needs comforting as I might need it myself. Its hard to justify but but I wish he was still here to gave us love , comfort and security as every father does for his family. It came down to the fact that I am still here on this earth and I wanted him to be here with me as well because 67 years has not been log enough. I try to take comfort knowing he is now in Heaven and no long as to worry about life’s daily matters and his fragile and frail body and all the heath issues and I’m sure we are all looking forward to that day when we enter into God’s Kingdom and don’t have to worry about the same. Its tough to let you go and its going to be a daily struggle waking up every morning realizing you’re gone so here I sit at this computer and struggling to write this and tell you that “it’s okay now and that you can go.” I love you Dad and I going to miss you.
