In Memoriam



Duane David DuBois

01/22/1983 - 04/13/2003


I thought about you today.

I thought about your smile, the way you laughed.

You were an amazing person in every single way.

So caring, so true.

There is never a day that passes without me missing you.

I know some day I will see you again.

Until that day comes,

My heart and memory are where I’ll keep you, friend.

By Duane’s friend, Stefany Nichole
