I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Alde. She was always so special to me and such a blessing to Duke in his life growing up. I'll never forget how she and Travis would stop by our house when they were on their walk in the afternoon and deliver Duke's Sunday School book to him. Special memories kept inside. Praying for all of you during this time. Hugs, M'Lissa
