  1. We were Fortunate to have such a Friend like Family, a Neighbor who Protected and watch Our Young Daughters.Very Respectful to Our Parents.It was a Blessing to have you in our Path.Prayers,love

  2. Duke was my big brother we didn’t share the same blood but blood was as not made us family. If anyone ever needed anything he could find it for you or get it done for you. If he couldn’t he could find the person to help. He didn’t care if you were rich or poor as long as you were loyal he called you his friend. The sadness I feel in my heart I can’t put into words. He was my big brother and a true friend and I know I’m not alone when I say he will be missed. RIP Duke🌹

  3. I learned a lot about the trade show business from Duke but more about life! He really taught me about being thankful for the people around me. He would say “you can choose to be happy or choose to be bitter….happier is better.”

    Going to miss ya Duke!

  4. The big brother I never had. A dear friiend to both my husband and myself. We are gonna miss you Duke. You are in our hearts and thoughta always

  5. I’m struggling to find the words.
    You came into our family, very loudly, with your big beautiful smile and great big bear hugs, and changed our lives forever. I will miss you always, always! Every once in awhile you meet someone that changes your life in ways you didn’t know you needed until they came along. You had that effect on everyone that you ever came across.
    My cousin, my friend, my protector, my Mr. Big Stuff, you will forever be in my heart!
    Some will walk into the pearly gates, and some will ride!! Ride On Duke!!
    I love you,
    Cousin Tammy
