  1. I’m so sorry to see this. My condolences to Betty and the family. Durward and I were good friends when I worked at Stockton St. I even attended his daughter’s wedding. I have missed my friend these years since he retired. My prayers are with the family. 💔

  2. Durward this will be is my first visit to VA on Tuesday that I haven’t taken any NC BBQ and sausage. I do remember the time this past fall that Jimmy and I and friends went to TENNESSEE and we had a wonderful visit and wonderful food at the restaurant Paula Deans and you wanted Fried Chicken and you got it too. You will certainly be missed by your family here in NC. You don’t have to worry about anything else and now and you can finally rest in Peace. We love you 💙

    Betty, Durward Jr. , Wendy and the entire family! I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Durward! My family has known you guys well over 30 years and although things has changed over the years, we still remain close to one another! Thru you guys our family was gifted Little Milton, Victoria and Desirae, along with many great nieces and nephews! I know with out a shadow of doubt, the next few days, the next few month and even the next few years will be hard, but you all will get thru it!! Memories will get you thru the sad times, memories of a husband, a daddy, grandpa and great grandpa! Always keeping Durward alive in your heart! It was an honor to have known you, Durward!! You did love your family!! With my deepest sympathy

  4. Betty and family, we are so sorry about the passing of Durward. It seems so unreal. Even though we didn’t see you often, I thought about you often and have so many great memories of times spent together back in the days on Decatur Street in Richmond. I know life will be different with Durward gone, but I pray the days will get easier as time goes on. So many have passed on….Mama, Daddy, Aunt Ruth, Uncle Red, Ray and now Durward. Life is so short and we never know when the circle of family will be broken again. Please know you will be in our thoughts and prayers. We love ya’ll. Your cousin, Vickie – NC

    Betty- I know your heart is broken as mine is too- Me and Durward shared so many memories together especially when we were kids – one of my favorite was when we would go to grandpas watermelon patch and get us a watermelon and sit on uncle Jeff’s tractor and eat it – I know you will miss him and so will I miss being able to call you two just to check on you both- you and your family are in my prayers because I know you will have some difficult days ahead. You will always be part of our family and can call on me anytime. Love you- Sophia
