Duane, you will forever be missed. Thank you for always being there for me growing up and taking care of my idiot boyfriends. You were a wonderful brother and I was proud of the man you became. You were an awesome husband and father and your love and honor will be lived through the lives of your children. I love you, love Felecia

Gavin, Conner, and Analaliese,
I am so very sorry for the loss of your father. No matter where you are in life, losing a parent is one of the hardest sorrows ever to endure. I did not personally know your dad, but I did have all of you in class and needless to say, he did a great job in raising all of you. I lost my parents within a year and a half of each other over 9 years ago and I truly think of them every day of my life. 
God bless your family and know that people in the community care and are praying for your faith and strength to get you through this difficult time. 
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Mrs. Derr
