View Video Tribute

Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in every tomorrow.
Remember the joy, the laughter, the smiles,
I've only gone to rest a little while.
Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.
So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am now, but as I used to be.
Because, I will remember you all
and look on with a smile.
Understand, in your hearts,
I've only gone to rest a little while.
As long as I have the love of each of you,
I can live my life in the hearts of all of you.

Christine Michelle Duncan (1966 - 2008)

Christine Michelle Duncan 1966 - 2008 Basham Funeral Graveside services for Christine Michelle Duncan were held at Greenlawn Cemetery (3700 River Blvd.) on Tuesday morning, November 25, at 11:00 a.m. Christine was born on December 2, 1966 in Bakersfield CA. She went to be with her Lord and Savior on November 19, 2008. She attended high school in Morro Bay and Lone Pine, CA. She particularly loved the mountains and enjoyed hiking and bird watching. She had a particular love of music which spanned styles from Country to Opera and took a keen interest in the welfare of animals. Her friendly, outgoing and witty personality was enjoyed by everyone she encountered. She left this world a better place by those lives she touched with her presence. She is now an angel in heaven. The Lord blessed her with a beautiful daughter, Breanna, whom she loved and cherished with all her heart. Christine is preceded in death by her step-father, Charles W. Jones. She is survived by her daughter, Breanna Duncan; husband, Randall Duncan; mother, Linda Jones; father and step-mother, Stephen and Peggy Jones; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Jim and Gay Duncan as well as numerous other relatives and friends.
