Ranee and Mason: My heart aches for you both. I was so saddened to learn about Duane's passing. I am in shock. I want you to know how proud of you both and how much he loved each of you. I so enjoyed my field days with Duane. His favorite topic to talk about was his family. I so enjoyed hearing about you both and looking at all of the pictures. Duane taught me so much about Pharmaceuticals and he was the finest in his profession. He truly set the bar for other Sales Representatives. I am so sad for your loss. I know I will sure miss him. He was an amazing man. God Bless You Both!
