Duff was a special lady! We so appreciate the opportunity to be a part of her life and have her be a part of our "family". I am sorry to not be able to make it down there for the visitation. You will be in our prayers.

Duff was a sweet, caring, kind lady. She was a great mother and grandmother to her grandchildren. She is gone from us too soon. She will be greatly missed by our whole family.
