Alice and family,

Patty and I extend our sincere love and prayers to you all during this difficult time. I met Duane through his (our) brother Dan over 50 years ago.

It's reassuring to know, Duane is home with the Lord giving Him praises and rejoicing in the Lord's presents.

In Jesus' Love,
Bob & Patty Craft
