Duane, They had a 20 year remembrance on 4-5-16 at Main Commerce. There were five former OSY agents there to remember you and Secretary Brown and that fateful day of 4-3-96.

You were a husband, brother, dad, and good friend. We are left to reflect 20 years later on what your life might have been like if that day had not happened. I honor your memory and your ultimate sacrifice made in service to your country. Rest in peace my brother until we meet again...and know that you are loved and missed.

John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.
