  3. Hey Du-Du-ain, I keep looking at the pictures and I still have a hard time accepting that you are not with us anymore. I want to be at peace knowing that you are beyond the pain, temptations and tribulations of everyday day life but I can’t. The selfish person in me that still remains bound to this earth wishes everyday that you are still here. I wish that I would have picked up the phone more often or that I would have fought past my own selfish needs and spent more time with you. I think you would be happy to know that Lori and I have gotten to know each other and Ihave to say that she is a kind and loving person and I am happy that she was part of your life. I think of you often and I miss you terribly. Love your sister, Dani

There are no words that can express how sorry it is to hear about his passing. He was very much loved and well respected by all his friends and family. The parties won’t be the same without him, but we’ll hold on to all the great memories he leaves us, and will never forget that smile of his. our deepest sympathy, Victorino Ohana

  6. When me and my mom found this tragic news my mom cried like never before and I did feel that way to but I learned to be strong and I know he is in a better place and now I will always wonder if he is looking down at us from above.I will wonder if he is talking to God about us. Know I will only be able to remember the fond memories of living with this strong loveable man. Know I have made a place in my heart for this great man I love. Now I give part of my heart to him. May God bring peace to your family.

  7. To the Bailey Family, Relatives, and Friends: I am deeply sorry for what has occurred. It is such a tragedy when a young man that is focused on life, that his life is cut short and taken away in such a manner. At this time, even though it is difficult, it is best to think about the good times that were had with Duane. I always liked Duane. At the Bailey family functions and other parties of their relatives and friends that I attended, it was a pleasure to see and talk to Duane. I can still picture him with his patented pull-back smile. Someone would say something amusing and he would simultaneously, tilt and lean back with big grinning smile. I will remember him. Duane will be missed by all.
