Condolence Messages

  1. To the family of Kenneth Duncan with my deepest condolences. I’m so sorry to learn of the passing of your dear loved one, but may your most cherished moments always warm and live forever in your hearts. Please take comfort in Christ Jesus’ promise of the resurrection, for he said at John 5:28,29, “Do not be amazed for all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out…” When Jesus was on the earth he proved he had the power to raise the dead. (John 11:11;43) He will do so again on a global scale, during his reign of God’s Kingdom that he taught us to pray for. (Matthew 6:9)

  2. To the family of Kenneth, you have my deepest sympathy in your loss. When Lazarus died, Jesus told his disciples that he was going to awaken him at John 11:11. He likened Lazarus’ death to a deep sleep state, in which he could only wake him through God’s power! Soon, you will be able to greet your loved one back to perfect life when he is resurrected (Acts 24:15)! May you find comfort in God’s promises.

  3. To the family of Kenneth Duncan , my deepest sympathy in the loss of your love one. Prayers for the family.

  4. To the Duncan family. May you find comfort in knowing that Kenny is resting with a higher power. You have my deepest sympathy in your time of loss. Kenny was a dear friend to me and I’ll never forget him. His inspirational texts often came at times when I needed encouragement. It’s hard to find true loyal friends like Kenny. I’m going to miss him.

    I went to school with Kenny at Medina Middle School and Beechcroft High School. We had some good and crazy times in school. Those we the good ole days. Kenny was one of my best friends in school, we lost contact with each other over the years. But I remember him like we were in school. Kenny was a very sweet and kind young man, would do anything for you. The kind of friend anyone would be happy to have. I will miss him dearly. RIH dear friend!! God bless you and your family!!
    Love Sharone
