Dear Duck family,
Mrs. Duck and my mother-in-law, Carol Derrick, were good friends at the Retreat! They didn't know each other's names, but spent many, many hours together, watching Bill Gaither, singing along!!!! We talked all about Red River and what she did there, talked about her sisters and her parents. I will remember her fondly! Carol passed away on September 10 after a very difficult 6 months. I can see them walking the streets of glory together!!! And now they know each other's names!! Happy Day!! Seeing their Savior!
Much, much love to your family.
