Thank You Friends

Thank you to all my dear, dear friends for the overwhelming out pour of love, sympathy and support for my family. I love each and everyone with all my heart. Duane's fight was great and I could not be prouder of how valiant and gracious he was even with the intense pain he felt towards the very end. Duane through and through.
When I am a little less numb I will pay tribute to the love of my life the best way I know how.

I really tried to come down and be there yesterday, but just couldn't get it worked out. You sound like such an amazing, strong woman to me whom I consider a friend I haven't met yet.
I'm really sorry that Duane is no longer with you for the rest of your earthly life, THANK GOODNESS you'll be together again--FOREVER! I know you'll take comfort in that throughout everyday. Prayers to you!

Dear Becky; I am so glad Jessie is there for you at this time. I have been praying for you guys to have continual peace to be able to get through day to day. That your hearts will take all the time they each ( all 8 of you) to grieve that you need to.

You are going to be blessed and supported more than you can realize and even knowing the principles of eternal families, still can't ease the pain of loss and missing your eternal sweetheart, but I know the Lord will help you take each day at a time.

Thank you for your example

Becky, my heart pounded with joy when I saw a new post. I and many others...countless others, have been logging on hourly, it seems, to read tributes and catch any update. Duane's funeral was amazing...I was in awe of what a great man he was in life on earth. I feel so blessed to have known him and hope to follow his example more closely. It was a bit like a motivational seminar! He was so adored! Darryl's eulogy was heartbreaking and great at the same time. I enjoyed meeting him, though I was a bit tongue tied when we met at the hospital. (hard to believe...I was at a loss for words.) All my love to you and the kids.

Love to you and your beautiful kids during this time. You will be in my prayers. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Becky, I wish there was something I could say that probably hasn't already been said. But I have to tell you how much your family has meant to me within this past week. I feel so much love and strength from you and this in turn has strengthened my own testimony to a new level. I will be forever grateful for the memory and the wonderful feelings that Duane has left behind for our Ward. Thank you so much and remember that we all love and support you no matter what.

I just want to scream! My reader hasn't loaded the last 4 of your posts!!! I thought things must be good or just busy if you weren't posting. Oh Becky. I am so, so very sorry. I can tell the Lord is looking over your heart and your family right now. There is so much faith in the few thoughts you shared.

I only knew Duane through your blog---but what an inspiration of love and service and devotion to family. Please, please know you'll be in my prayers--you and your sweet children.

You know. You know about eternity. Day by day may seem like forever, but before you know it---there you will all be. Together like nothing had changed. And whole. And perfect.

I wish I knew the right combination of words to make it all better. Just hope you feel the love in this message.

Peace be over you and your family.

Lots of love,

I know that I have stumbled upon something so personal and raw, yet I want you to know how reading about Duane has touched me.
