Words can’t express how much you’ll be missed, but you gave us many memories, which we will use to reminisce. You provided plenty of wisdom. The lessons that you taught us still ring true. You encouraged me to do right. You said to always keep God in all my ways and I’ll never forget that. As a child you taught me how to pray. Though your transition dismaforys me and makes me very sad, you’ll always and ever be the bestest, bestest, grand-dad, Snook Duke.
