  1. Dear Duke family, you have my deepest sympathy. The loss of a loved one can cause great pain and sorrow but you can gain comfort. Gods word the Bible can give you that comfort. Acts24:15 says “There is going to be a resurrection” so you can see your dear loved one again. I hope this is a source of encouragement to the family.
