After the death of her 20-year-old son, Kathleen B. Duncan started writing this blog. About two years later she published her first book. She has written four books on grief including “God’s Healing in Grief” and “My Journey through Grief into Grace.”
Although it has been almost eight years since The Accident, grief is still a part Ron and Kathleen’s lives. Though they have found joy in daily living, they will never forget the events of that day, nor will they
stop loving and missing their son.
In summer of 2018 Kathleen was thrust into the world of caregiving when she became responsible for her then 74-year-old stepmother whom she refers to as “E.” After a year-long court battle, Kathleen became the legal Guardian and Conservator for her stepmom, meaning she is responsible for all medical and financial decisions as well as all decisions concerning where E will live and her daily care.
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so
that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled
with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.
Philippians 1:9-11 NIV
Ron and Kathleen have been married for almost 40 years. Over the decades, they have had some funadventures together. Ron sometimes travels for work, and Kathleen often gets to tag along. In one three-year period, together they drove through 48 states and parts of Canada while visiting customers. They carried their bicycles in the back of their truck and found time to ride in twenty states. They have ridden through Chicago, Salt Lake City, and New York City as well as on a few lesser known trails. Most recently, they have discovered Scuba! Read about their adventures here.
