      Duane was probably the most caring and genuine person I’ve known. He would give you the shirt off his back and it’s with pride I say he was a true friend. Rest in peace my brotha!

    Damn Cuz, my heart is broken. We had a lot of good times. From wearing out that Ratt cassette, to tormenting your sisters, we had a good time. Our last talk about my serious heart problem, never thought this would happen to you. You were the kindest person I knew. I’ll never forget my twin brother from another mother. I’ll never forget you, ever. Rest peaceful and fly with the Angels. I’ll see you again Snuit. With a broken heart I only say goodbye for now. I love you and until we meet again❤️❤️❤️
    Peace be with you!!!
