    Our thoughts and prayers are with Duncan’s family.
    Duncan leaves with us very fond memories – his Scottish accent, humor,
    the tireless hours he spent mowing the lawns at Olivet Christian College, his devotion to May, and his servant heart.
    He is now at peace with his Saviour.
    Gordon and Cheryl Donaldson.

    A gentle man with a gentle spirit has gone from us.
    It is wonderful to think of him meeting again with his loved ones who have gone before and particularly his grandson Jonathan and wife May.
    91 years is a good run and other than the last few years with memory loss a life well lived.
    Annette thank you for being a caring and loving daughter with your brothers further away. He sure did love “daughter” as he like to call you.

    Although I only met Duncan very late in his life, I will truly miss seeing him on our Thursday visits (with my dogs) to Thompson house.
    He was such a dear sweet gentleman and I would tell him that I could listen to him forever with his beautiful Scottish accent.
    My thoughts and prayers are with his family who can comfort each other knowing Duncan is now in his true home with his Saviour and this parting is but for a short time.
