My sincere condolences to Duffy's family. I met Duffy about 30 years ago. Although I did not get to see him often, I considered him a true friend. We always talked about old cars. He was always so proud of the work he did and of his children. He will be missed. May God be with the family.

Mr Caldwell and his wife always welcomed me into their home when I would go to see Neal. They raised to very special men. Prayers to Mrs Caldwell and family.
