Nancy and family,  I am so sorry that we lost Tuck.  He was such a good man and a hard worker.  He loved camping and we always had so much fun when he would bring the camper and stay at my house.  Most of the time he was pretty quiet.  Tuck used to love to talk to Jimmy and I think that was when I heard him talk the most.  He was so proud of his kids and taught them so many things.  His family meant the world to him.  Tuck went to many bluegrass festivals with Nancy always by his side.  This is what he really enjoyed along with his skidooing.  I know you all miss him so much.  I didn’t get to see him much but I miss him too.  I know you all did everything you could to take care of him.  I know he isn’t suffering anymore but this world is not the same without him.  He would want us all to move on and it is going to be hard.  Nick, I know he was so proud of you.  Every time I talked to him, he always had something to say about you.  He was my brother and I loved him.  I love all of you and hope we can stay close.  I am always here for you.  Barb

Nancy and family, Sending my condolences in the passing of Tucker. I only met him a few times through the many years you were patients of Dr. Duffner. I believe he did some work for the doctor. You are in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless and comfort you in this time of great sadness.
