Dear Kay & Family,
I'm sadden to hear of Duane's passing. As a young neighbor boy growing up by your family farm I often worked for Duane, I enjoyed my time and learning experience I got from Duane. I'm in the hospital in Sioux Falls and feeling bad as I won't be able to attend the service.
He was a friend and mentor to me.
Peace and friendship to all

Dear Family,
Sorry for your loss. Our families were close as we were neighbors when all us kids were growing
up in the Farwell community.
Good times and good memories.
I hope to make it to the service.

We're so sorry for your family's loss. May the thought at Acts 24:15 in God's Word the Bible encourage you all. "There will be a resurrection."
