Eric so sorry to hear about Ducky.  May your memories of good times together bring you peace and comfort.  Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Let's not forget. Ducky did have a special friend named Joe Roberts and each of us would lucky to have a friend like him. He would stop by Ducky's house on his way to work or after work. To check on Ducky to see if he needed Anything. We would bring Ducky food or go to the store for him.

He was in the Boy Scouts troop 165 years ago. Ducky went to work at Bucks Drive in as a car hop and cleaning tables. His love was his son First and Relic hunting. He also was a great shot with a Rifle and years ago loaded his own shells. He carried hard candy in is pocket to give to people peoplewhen he went

I am so sorry to hear about Ducky's passing.  He was my Mom's neighbor (Paige DeBord).  I remember one time he gave her a recipe made with cauliflower, soup, and a crockpot.  She loved it.  The also commiserated about their shared driveway and their dislike of the new spring that popped up.  He also had historical stories to tell.  Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of Ducky.  I will be praying for you all.
