What a wonderful man! I never saw him without a smile on his face and a good word for everyone who knew him. He loved his family, and was a christian man who was loyal to his faith. He was song leader on his church for 45 years.
To know him was to love him. It was a pleasure to be around him. I am sure his light will shine bright in his heavenly home. Keep spreading joy Uncle Duane. I know that is your gift from God.

To my sweet and precious favorite Uncle Dwayne, you will be so missed. All the fond memories I have of you is your happy attitude and caring for other people. I am so proud that you were able to farm some of the land that I was raised on and the times you carried me from the cotton patch when I was a child. Part of my past goes with you and hope to see you in heaven. RIP as I know you are. Love You

To my forever friend, You have been so good to me all our years of being friends and members of Greenfield. You blessed me with your strength and dedication to our Lord, I don't think I would be where I am today as a Christian if not for you James Daniel. I love you and miss you already so much, one thing I know, If i keep up the good fight and remain steadfast we will sing again together, wait for me on the other side of Heaven's gates and we sing all our favorites and we will get to do all four verses to each song, no worries of running out of breath..... "Oh Won't it be Wonderful" there ? Much Love Ann
