What was the day like – according to Facebook

August 13

5:56 am

This cannot be happening.

6:45 am

My sweet, sweet Andrew is with Christ. We are hurting and ask for prayers. We are also praying for the families of the other “Texas” young people killed in crash. I pray, too, for all those involved in the show. I know they are hurting today, having lost so many friends on one brief moment. I pray that we all find comfort in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

7:55 am

I cannot say anything. I know Jesus is Lord. That is all I know right now.


Just saw this post from my “Camp” in July [Luke 7:50 You faith has saved you: GO IN PEACE] Andrew went in peace. He did what he loved. He sang and danced on stage full of good friends and beautiful women.

2:55 pm

Thank you all for your prayers. Andrew is dancing at the throne of God today. Way too soon for me, but God had his days planned before the creation of the world.


For those who want to attend the memorial service for Andrew:

Graveside service at 2 pm at Rosemont Cemetery. All are welcome.

All are also welcome to joun us that evening. Celebration of Andrew Raymond Duncan‘s life Friday night at 6 pm at the Wichita Theater. We will have food and time to simply be together after the memorial service at the theater.


I am reading all these posts about my wonderful, wacky son. THANK YOU!!

Thank you for – Loving him Laughing with and at him… Acting with him Singing with him Dancing with him Encouraging him Not encouraging him, sometimes Teaching him Being kind to him Remembering him.

The stories and pictures help us through our pain.


I had been telling people all day that I knew God was in control, He knew about this day even before Andrew was born, and the He would be glorified somehow.

I did not speak with our grown children until they each arrived at our home. The Holy Spirit confirmed for me the truths when our oldest son David arrived late that evening.

When my son David Duncan arrived tonight:

Me (while hugging him tightly and crying): you have lost lots of buddies over the past couple of years (in the Marines). How do you make it through this?

David: You know, Momma, that God is in control. He had a plan for Andrew’s life. He knew about this from before the world began. And He will be glorified through it.

Amen and amen.


For those with great pictures of Andrew: could you have some of these printed and bring them to the memorial Friday evening? So many great pics that I don’t have. I cannot seem to keep up with all the posts! So glad others love my son as much as I do. Not did.
