    DuWayne was a great help to St. Peter Parish in many ways, but for me, he was always there to help set up the Church for Christmas and then in January when everything. had to be taken down and put away. His kindness is very remembered. He will be blessed for his good life, and may you receive comfort knowing he was appreciated by many.
