Our deepest condolences to my precious Momma for the loss of her sweet sister and my cousins, Debbie, Susan, Kenny, and Greg for the passing of their beautiful Momma and all of the family and all of the loved ones of Aunt Doris. We pray God's comfort and His "peace that passeth ALL understanding" will continue to fill your souls and sustain you all in the midst of Aunt Doris's journey "safely home". Her amazing faith and spirit always shined brightly and I know she is now forever in the presence of Jesus and free of the bondage of this world. SO much joy for Aunt Doris, yet I know there will be days of sorrow for those she left behind. I pray in the midst of those days and in those moments, God's precious gift of memories will heal your hearts with such abundant joy, smiles, and laughter too through each of your tears. With all of our love, Lydia (McGuffin) Duncan and Randy Duncan.
