Laura, Tony and I are very sorry for your loss - what a big loss it is. Duncan and yourself were always so fun and Duncan's quick humor and smile is how we will remember him. Prayers for you and all your family.

So sad to see this. I loved working with Hack at Wesleyan as a Pinkerton and then meeting up with him again at the Lincoln Post Office. What a great guy. I half-heartedly tried finding him over the years because - even though we only knew each other a couple years - I just loved his positive attitude and love of music. So sorry for your loss, Laura. All my best to you and his family and (I'm sure) hundreds of friends. When people ask me for evidence that life isn't fair, this is one of the first things I'll think of.
