OBITUARY

Luis Eduardo Durango

August 29, 1956June 6, 2021

Dr. Luis Eduardo Durango Valero went to walk with our Lord on Sunday, June 6, 2021. He is survived by his two children, Diana Marie Durango and Nicholas Alexander Durango, as well as their mother, Mary Esther Durango Martinez. He is also survived by his mother, Matilde Durango Valero, eight siblings and many nieces and nephews. Luis loved all of his family, friends, and patients. He was a gentle and caring man, who had a passion for medicine, and healing others. He had a constant yearning to learn in order to help others through Western Medicine, Eastern Medicine, and Functional Medicine. He was unparalleled to others in his field. He attended medical school at Spartan Health Sciences University where he received his MDdegree, and later received his DPM from Barry University in Miami, while also finishing his surgical residency in South America. He continued, until his last days with us, studying for his certification in Functional Medicine. He would pray to God daily asking, “I ask that you help me. Teach me how to forgive, and to give me the wisdom and knowledge that I need to live a spiritual life, and to be able to help others. Thank you.” One that had the honor of knowing this humble, spiritual, wise, and loving man, knew that his prayers were answered. His heart was able to forgive those who trespassed him. His spirit grew with the love of God. He did and still continues to help others through his medical and spiritual teachings that he shared with his patients and others. He was a man whose virtue in honesty, truth, and respect, to this day, is revered by many. He was a father whose impact of love, dedication, and virtue lives on as a legacy with his children. They say that we cannot look upon the face of God, but rather to experience God. This certainly was a man that allowed you to experience the graces of God through his love, humility, and practicing of faith and spirituality. He knew, and would often say that God was a verb… that God, our Father, was love. His credo was that we must love one another and treat others with love to know God and experience God. To know this man was to love him. To know this man was to know love. To know this man was a blessing for all of those with whom God allowed us to meet, to live with, and, to now, live on with his legacy. He will be greatly missed, but his legacy will live on and will not be forgotten.

Muy amado hermano. Te extraño muchísimo. Siempre vas a estar en mi corazón. Sé que en este momento estás gozando plenamente de la presencia de Dios y conociendo nuevos lugares fantásticos que brindan paz, tranquilidad y alegría. Saber esto, calma el dolor de no poder compartir contigo más experiencias, risas, bromas, anécdotas y cosas que me contabas y creías de cómo fué la creación del universo, de la vida espiritual, de otros mundos... A menudo pienso en todo lo que hablábamos de estos temas. Dios ahora te está respondiendo a todas esas interrogantes que tenemos, enseñándote cosas grandes y ocultas que no conocemos, como dice en su palabra. Gracias hermano por todo lo que compartimos, gracias por todo 🙏💓
Con un gran y fuerte abrazo saludo a mi mamá, a mis hermanos y hermanas, a Mary quien siempre cuidó a Lucho con amor, dedicación y respeto, a mis sobrinos Nicolás Alexánder y Diana María, a todos y cada uno, los amo y confío en que la paz y el amor llene nuestros corazones para calmar el dolor por la ausencia física de nuestro Lucho y nos mantenga siempre unidos en familia 🙏

Querido hermano Lucho, no habrá nunca palabras que realmente puedan expresar el dolor y la tristeza que se lleva dentro, profundo en el corazón, cuando nos deja un ser querido, un hermano.
Nos harás falta, te extrañaremos por el resto de nuestras vidas y pensaremos en todos los buenos momentos que pudimos compartir contigo, con tu humor que no faltaba en nuestras conversaciones y tus despedidas siempre cargadas de tus bendiciones.
Aún los momentos duros que pudimos tener, fueron una fuente formadora y transformadora para tí y para nosotros.
No pensamos que nos ibas a dejar tan pronto, pero las circunstancias de la vida misma, así lo determinaron y Dios te acoge hoy en sus brazos misericordiosos y llenos de infinito Amor.
Siempre buscaste su presencia y ahora Él abre sus alas para cobijarte.
Dejas unos hermosos hijos y una mujer que siempre te apoyó.
Llénalos con tu paz para que ellos puedan continuar con esperanza una vida llena de posibilidades.
Te Amamos y te extrañaremos siempre

Lucho,
Tu partida es muy triste para todos, es dificil ver que un hermano se va de este mundo que conocemos. Tu memoria siempre será recordada, tu forma de ser, tu nobleza. Se que estaras con nuestros seres amados que tambien se fueron antes, que estarás en un lugar de paz y tranquilidad, lo que de alguna manera me reconforta un poco. A tus hijos Diana y Nicholas, a Mary, quien siempre estuvo a tu lado, les doy mis mas sinceras condolencias y espero que tengan la fortaleza suficiente para sobrellevar tu ausencia fisica que tienen en este momento y que dia a dia será un poco mas duro. Hoy no queda mas que darte un hasta luego, pues seguramente nos reuniremos todos nuevamente en algun momento.
Siempre te llevaré en mi corazón.
Tu hermano Gustavo

El Tio Lucho fue siempre un tio muy amoroso en sus acciones y manera de hablar, también se destacó por ser una persona humilde siempre presta para escuchar y dar consejo. Nos dio un gran ejemplo a todos de amor y bondad. Sé que ahora está dormidito en el mejor lugar que puede estar y es la memoria de nuestro creador, Jehová Dios. Solo se ha acostado a dormir y se levantara en el nuevo mundo, feliz sin ningún dolor ni mal recuerdo (Juan 5:28,29). Cada día será un día más cerca de volverlo a ver junto al abuelo, Bryan y Juan Andrés y todos aquellos que se han dormido en la muerte, muy pronto. Jeremías 29:11

Uncle Lucho was always a very loving uncle in his actions and way of speaking, he also stood out for being a humble person always ready to listen and give advice. He set a great example for all of us of love and kindness. I know that now he is asleep in the best place he can be and it is the memory of our creator, Jehovah God. He has only gone to sleep and will wake up in the new world, happy without any pain or bad memories (John 5: 28,29). Each day will be one day closer to seeing him again with grandpa, Bryan and Juan Andrés and all those who have fallen asleep in death, very soon. Jeremiah 29:11
