Duane was so willing to share his vast knowledge with me. I learned something from him every day for the 17 years that I worked with him. It was so great to reconnect these past few months. He was a good man and will be missed.

Dear Carol and family,
I was very sad to hear about Duane’s death. He was so kind to me and the Franciscans. Thank you Carol for your lasting friendship. I had been thinking of you and Duane very often these last weeks. So sorry I am out of state until Monday night. You will be in my prayers of comfort these days.
Love,
Sister Cordy
