To Aunt Joan, cousins Debbie, Steve, and Rhonda; this is Tammy ((Brumfield) Wise. I wanted to share a memory I treasure of Uncle Duane. My husband Joe and our daughter Amy and I stopped a few years ago at Uncle Duane’s garage sale. He displayed beautiful wooden items he had made. He knew me, although we rarely saw each other. He spoke a few words to Amy, and I said, “Uncle Duane, you know she has special needs, and she can’t talk, don’t you?” His reply was, “I know, and I pray for you.” He wanted to give her a large stuffed teddy bear. We still have it, and display it in our home every New Year, and I think of that day we stopped and chatted with Uncle Duane. We’ve lost someone special, and I send you my sympathy and my prayers. Love, Tammy

I am deeply sorry for your loss, I know the heartache of losing a loved one.  Soon the God of Comfort will bring an end to death and wipe away the tears from all faces, for this has been promised at Isaiah 25:8. We can also look forward to the marvelous hope brought out at Acts 24:15 There we see that those we lost in death will be brought back to life here on earth. I do hope you find comfort in this as I have. Mythoughts are with you
Sincerely, Janet
