"For two to three years, she knew this might happen,” he said. “So she would say, 'Who is going to sit next to you?' And I said, 'No one.'"

Through tears, he recalled Beth told him, “‘You better not let another girl take my place.’ I said, ‘I won’t.’” He continued, “There is not another Beth. There'll never be another Beth. There ain't a girl built like another Beth.” Duane and Beth dated for 16 years before they tied the knot in 2006.

“And I didn't even make a decision, I almost said, 'I can't.' Before I could say, 'Alright,' she couldn't breathe and I called the ambulance,” Duane revealed. “But every day she talked as if she was not there. 'Here's what to do with this, here's what to do with that. Don't keep running your mouth. When they ask you a specific question, just answer that.'"
