dportwood: I know Duane would have been very surprised because he was so humble. I am not surprised because this story brought tears to me also. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Connie

cephira: When I think of Fanstory I will forever think of Duane. His were some of the first writings I read when I joined this site. There will always be something magical about the way he wove a story. Each word close to his heart. Each word full of truth and love for God's creatures. When I think of Wyoming, I visualize Duane there, roaming God's country under a bright blue sky. I have never been to Wyoming. I have never seen what Duane saw but his words put a longing in my heart for fields of green grass, the beat of horses hooves, and the smell of fresh rain.
