    Dear Heavenly Father,

    You alone are the Comforter. Please provide a season of comfort in the midst of deep sadness, to the hearts that are hurting now that Babe has come home to you. Hold them, Father. Please wrap your loving arms around them so that they know they are not alone. You are the One who brings peace. They need you, Lord. Please cover the hurt with Your faithful and peaceful presence, Jesus. In your name we pray, Amen.

    God’s richest encouragement and love,

    Cliff & Wendy Duske

    Babe, the most caring, wonderful, funny person ! She loved her family deeply and did everything she could to always be of help to everyone. She always had time for a visit and especially a laugh, a true angel on earth. She never asked for anything for herself, but was always doing for others. She made sure everyone was taken care of. She will be missed beyond measure. My favorite auntie also!
