"[With any] new experience that you have, you don't know how you're doing because you've never experienced it," Duane said with a long pause. "I have a lot of people who depend on me. All my supervisors said, 'Dog, it's time to man up.' So I'm trying to man up."
He also explained that, as he's in mourning, he's still processing the fact that Beth is no longer by his side.
"I haven't gotten past the place where I'm [not] putting a pillow where she was and covering it up," Duane explained. "And then I wake up in the middle of the night and I see her and it doesn't register that [it] ain't her. I'm still there."
