My condolences to Mrs. Dukes and the Dukes family. Jillian and I had so many great times together and she will be missed dearly. Her and I had a special relationship. We were equally important to each other. She was suppose to meet me in Dallas, TX. God had other plans. I will always love her.
Love Your Good Friend
