My sympathy to the Duncan family I had never met her ,but have known Dr. Duncan ever since he started his practice in Cambridge.

All of the great memories. Laughing, crying, " oops we missed what just happened with our children on the ball field because were chatting too much" moments, and "only a mother of a large family would understand" moments, .... I have a Treasury of wonderful memories built up from my friendship with Maria over the many years. I look forward to seeing her legacy through her wonderful children and grandchildren. How blessed we have been to be a part of her life here on earth. Love, laughter, and lasting friendship in good times and bad. She is a wonderful gem that we wished we could have held onto longer. God has His own plans and we surrender her accoding to His will, but I shall lovingly keep all of my great memories of and with Maria.

Extending deepest sympathy to family and friends in this time of sorrow. Please take comfort in knowing that soon all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus voice and come out (John 5:28,29). Until that blessed day, may the GOD of all comfort grant you peace (2 Cor. 1:3,4) while many fond memories of Maria warm your hearts.

I loved being Marias best friend of forty-one years. I will miss her everyday! The Lord Jeus has a sweet angel in heaven. She loved her family with all her heart and soul. She has left behind many dear friends and I had the pleasure of meeting them and sharing our mutual friendship. Fly, fly like a butterfly and thank you for sharing your canopy bed with me in our youth. Love you always! Liz
