When I was a kid, Mrs. Duncan was the kindest, 2nd mother, figure to me. She fed me, bandaged boo-boos, and had no problem putting me back in line if I got out(if you catch my drift). She was an amazing friend to my mom and a wonderful spiritual leader. I know she is resting comfortably with our maker. My heart hearts and my love is with the family.

Linda , Mrs. Adam and I were Girl Scout leaders. Our oldest daughters were in the troop and in the same grade at school. One year Linda and Mrs. Adams to the girls camping and it rain so much that the river on each side of the camp was out of it bank. So on Sunday my husband and another parent went down to get them . We drove our Vega and they would in a pickup. We drove across the creek that was out of it's banks and had to have the caretaker help pull us across so that we could get the girls . We load them up in the car and drove back to the creek and use a rope to pull us back to the pickup. We load them up in the pickup and the Vega and came back to Crowley. Every sense that time Linda and I have been friends.

I met Linda at James Avenue Baptist Church in 1957. We have been friends since. We were crazy teenagers , we dated some of the same guys, double dated, something going on all the time. We both married in 1961, had children 5 or 6 years later. She was so funny all the time. There are so many memories of Linda in my mind and heart. When we retired we would go shopping every other week, it did not matter if we bought anything, I have missed Linda the last few years. There will never be another person as sweet, funny. loyal, and unique as Linda Duncan, I am sure she has Heaven stirred up!

Where do I begin to express what a blessing Mrs. Duncan has been to me? She was our long time neighbor growing up and such a dear friend to my mother and father all their lives. She loved all of us as her own and my children as her own grandchildren. I was blessed to have several neighborhood Moms and Linda was one of them. I remember how she loved going to buy greeting cards and I remember going with her several times. She would get tickled and begin laughing and before I knew it her contagious laugh had me laughing and not able to stop! I remember all the times helping her with the house, wrapping Christmas packages, and shaping my eyebrows! Thank you God for the blessing of Mrs Duncan in my life!

Mrs. Duncan used to drive Dodi and I to middle school each morning. We would pile into the car and right as she put the car in reverse she would say, “Is anything coming? We would say nothing, then she would say, “nothing but a greyhound... a greyhound bus that is”. I still say this when I get in the car to go on long road trips. She was so funny and has the most amazing laugh. She shared her home with our family and I have so many memories of eating and playing with Dodi and Donna. I feel so blessed to have known such a wonderful lady!
