    So sorry for your loss…Wyenne was a blessing to many in Education. I appreciate her words of encouragement shared with my children. I enjoyed the times we were able to fellowship with her and her family. No matter where you encountered Wyenne, she was always cheerful and friendly! May you feel our Lord’s comforting Presence during this difficult time!

    You have my deepest sympathy for your loss. Mrs. Duncan has always been a blessing and an inspiration to me and the Parker family. She was always the same person with words of encouragement. She showed concern about my children and inquired about the status of the Parkers whenever we met. Mrs. Wyenne Duncan was a great educator and shared her love to all as she encouraged us all to do our best!. Trust God and He will give you and the family strength to endure this pain.
