The world is still
reeling from the loss of Aerobatic great Duane Cole. We've heard
from many, many people who have felt the impact of this man on
their lives and their words are sweet and ever-so-sad... in that
Duane is not here to bask in the adoration that was his due.
This weekend, this gentle, gentle man makes landfall one last
time and the aviation world has a chance to say thanks for the
inspiration and the fellowship he offered throughout his life. If
you, like ANN's Jim Campbell, are trying to rearrange schedules in
order to honor this man, please be advised that services for
Duane will be held this Saturday and Sunday, in Burleson, TX.
The visitation will
occur Saturday, February 7, from 7-9 p.m. at the Mountain
Valley Funeral Home, 3407 SW Wilshire Blvd., 76097, in Burleson,
which the Funeral services are scheduled for 2 p.m.
Sunday, February 8.
