I think the mold was broke when Duane was created, he was a man who's heart was filled with love and happiness.  Looking back when I first "noticed" Duane, we were getting ready for the Dress Up Parade, our daughter was one of the Happy Canyon Princesses, Duane was on the Round-Up Board I believe.  He was having a good time, decided to be a pill, looked over his shoulder and proceeded to back his horse into my Pros.  At first Pros was a little miffed by this to say the least... hahaha... who would have known years later that Duane would be Pros's supervisor for awhile.  Pros really got to know Duane and had the upmost respect for him as well as myself.  

May God be with you Patty, Ryan, Jen, Tiah, Jack and Gabe, during this time and the years to come till you all meet again.
