Condolence & Memory Journal

Duane was always a good friend to the family and attended my children's graduations. He also instrumental in my knowledge of plumbing and learning a career. We always had a great time visiting and I have always considered Duane a dear friend.

Good memories of Duane and Jeanette several years back, when we worked together servicing for Intertherm. Could always depend on Duane to carry through on what needed to be done. Since he and I were within months of the same age, I will look forward to seeing him again, before too long.

May the presence of our Lord, comfort Jeanette and the children.
