Kim and Pail Duke

In memory of Julia Duke-Young and Jocelyn

Our daughter, Julia, was a divorced mother of two boys (our grandsons), then 10 and 13. She had been in a relationship for about five years when she became pregnant with his child, a girl. He did not want the baby from the start, so instead of just walking away, like he had already done months before, he murdered my daughter. She was seven months pregnant. He then took his own life with a gun he had purchased from a local gun show, along with 200 rounds of ammunition, just two weeks before. We will Wear Orange for Julia and Jocelyn.

Reacting shows support for gun violence survivors.
