EDGAR — Ronnie and Connie Duncan plan to renew their wedding vows next year, after 25 years, in a ceremony that will come after the couple overcame significant hurdles.
Between two major storms this summer that attacked their Edgar home, destroying vehicles, trees, siding, windows, the roof on their home and a couple barns, Ronnie was one of two men who were nearly killed in a July 5 explosion at the Aurora Co-op Grain Terminal at Sedan.
Since then, Ronnie and Corey Galaway of rural Edgar have been progressing in their recovery to the point that each man is within a week of being able to return home.
"I think the biggest thing you realize is everything you think you have time for can be taken away in a heartbeat and so you don't want to put off until tomorrow anything," Connie Duncan said.
A benefit has been organized by residents of the Edgar community and neighboring areas for 5-8 p.m. Saturday at the Sandy Creek School on Nebraska Highway 14 near Fairfield.
