Dukes was always Jacobs best friend we are lost for words. A few months ago Jeff called Jacob when Jacob was released and they spoke often those words that he spoke will always remind us of the true most honest friend that Jacob ever had. Anyone who knew Dukes could always call him a friend. Please know prayers are going up for all of Jeff's family and to all of his friends. God bless The Elstons and Jacob and Brandon Elston parents Linda and Claude Ward
