John Duncan, Jr.

June 20, 1927 — May 12, 2020

John Duncan, Jr.

God saw you were getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered, "Come to me." With tearful eyes we missed being with you, and then you passed away, although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, a precious soul at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best. Author Unknown
