The Duran Family

You will forever remain our Superman. The strength I’ve witnessed in you is something I continue to admire.
I want to thank you for taking in my family with love and kindness and making us feel like we were apart of your family. We will miss seeing the smile on your face when we walk into your home, the warmth of your hugs, listening to your stories, absorbing your advice and laughing at your jokes. Your spirit was one of a kind! You made everyone who met you feel wanted and loved. There is a hole left in all the hearts of those who had the honor in knowing you.
We’ll forever love and miss you!
Please watch over us all and don’t forget to visit. I could use one of your jokes right about now.

We’ll love you for eternity,
Alysia, Omar and our boys

Hi Letty, it’s Margie
I am heartbroken to hear that my friend is no longer with us. I cannot imagine your pain. I’m very sorry I can not make it to the services but please, if there is anything I can do for you please let me know. Frank was a great friend and played a large part in my life. I will miss him dearly. My prayers for you and your girls as you go through this difficult time. I know how he loved his family. May God give you strength as you prepare to send your husband home.

Jay and I go a long way. We were about 14 years old when we met in the neighborhood. You became best friend to my brother and a close friend to me. As teenagers you took me for joy rides in your favorite red Camaro (in neighborhoods we probably shouldn’t have been in). You met my sister, fell in love, married her and became my brother-in-law. You had your first child that I baptized and you became my Compadre. I will miss your loud voice and your silly jokes immensely my friend, brother-in-law, Compadre.

Tio Jay you were more than just a Tio. You were a father figure to my sisters and I. There are to many memories but the one that sticks out the most is from just recently. Before we moved to Texas you told us “Just wait you will miss the tap water from Chicago!” We just laughed and thought ok. Well when we moved away and had our first glass of Texas tap water I remembered what you had said. The first time I went back to visit you said “So do you miss the tap water?” I laughed so hard and said YES. You said “See I told you, your Tio is always right!” And every time after when you saw me you would serve me a nice glass of Chicago tap water.

You were not only my uncle but a father figure to me and my husband... then a grandfather figure to my children. We have so many memories with you I can not pick one. I will always remember you smiling.

My favorite memory of him was the night of Lydia's and I wedding. After the ceremony, he said I am now Family and to call him Tio Jay. He was always so welcoming whenever he saw me, and had tons of stories and DAD JOKES. He will definitely be missed. Even though if I haven't known him as long, he definitely made an impact when I first came to Chicago. May he Rest In Peace

Words will never be able to express how much you will be missed Tio Jay. My favorite memory of you is when you would show up in your truck to take us to Great America and you would be blasting the Vengabus “we like to party” song. That song always reminds me of you. I am blessed to have so many memories of you. I love you.
