My deepest sympathy to Holly and the family. I know The Dude will be missed so much. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very sad time. I will never forget the first time Holly told me her husband's name The Dude and I said "what is his name" and she said "The Dude" and he sure did live up to his name. May The Dude Rest in Peace with the Lord and I know he is watching over his family always. With Love, LuAnn
