  • I didn’t know Uncle Duane as Norman, because he was always “Duane” in our family. Aunt Mary and him were fun and always made me laugh when we were together. Uncle Duane is the last of his siblings to go home, and is ending their family’s era. I know he is happy now and at peace, and for that I am grateful. 💞

  • To the family members, so very sorry for the passing of Duane, many blessings and prayers at this time of sorrow.

  • Sending my Love and Prayers to Terry and Toby. Duane was a lost man without Mary she was a very strong wonderful person .she took such good care of her soul mate and he didn’t ha e much to live for. After she was gone. Thinking of many good times is what we need to do now.
