    Heidi, this is to give you my deepest sympathy resulting from the recent death of Duck. From all accounts, the two of you had a great and long life together. Growing up, he and I did a lot of fun things, the most memorable being the many overnight camping trips along Beaver Creek to its mouth at the Amite River. Everyone is so appreciative of the excellent care and and support you provided to him in his declining years. Wishing you the best in the future, Sonny

    I will miss you my Dear Cousin. We grew up together in the same neighborhood with the same Grandpa and Grandma Webb. We drew names at Christmas every year and had much fun. Love you all.
