Mike and I send our most sincere condolences to the family of Dewey. Mike was one of his clients and had only good things to say about him. I unfortunately never had the pleasure of meeting him. Our prayers are with those closest to him and may he rest in peace.

I have very fond memories of Duane, going way back to the 1960s. He was a good friend of my parents and dated my cousin for awhile. He had a wonderful sense of humor and was always welcome for dinner at our house. My prayers and condolences to each family member. May he rest in peace.
