through 8/19/01 2001 Family reunion in Billings,
MT top of page
was a great turnout to the family reunion this year and the weather
in Montana couldn't have been better. This year the family reunion was
held at Oliver and Helen Sullivan's house in Billings, and there was
quite the setup there. This was the first family reunion for our newborn
daughter, Ashley, and she gad a great time seeing all the new faces.

Doug Duncan victim of IT layoffs 9/27/01
Work found!top of page
seems the big trend in Denver right now is to lay off all the IT people
in all the large companies around town, and this time I got hit. I survived
3 major layoffs since Qwest bought US West last year, but the fourth,
and last from the original merger, I was not so lucky. Well, I finally
found a job with a company called AT&T Broadband. I work
as a contractor and do desktop support for the employees who work for
the company. It is a good job, but it is about a 25 mile drive from
my house to an area of Denver called the Tech Center, south of town,
and these drivers in Denver are horrible! (Click
see a photo of me while I was unemployed ;-)
Jere Duncan in Denver for Mother's Day / Crystal's first Mother's Day
top of page
& Crystal Duncan were delighted to hear that Doug's mother, Jere
Duncan, was planning on visiting Denver for a week over Mother's Day.
She could not wait to meet her granddaughter, Ashley Duncan, for the
first time, and this would also be Crystal's
first Mother's Day, so that made it extra special. While
she was here, we planned a little Mother's Day dinner at our house for
not only Jere, but Crystal's mother, Bev Scott, Crystal's grandmother,
Ruby DeBeaux, Crystal's stepmother, Lucy, and Lucy's mother, Evelyn.
We had a lot of mom's over here that day. Also in attendance were (of
course) were Doug Duncan, Crystal's father, John Scott, and Crystal's
uncle, Roger DeBeaux. Please check out the photo album below for some
very nice pictures.
Ashley Ann Duncan Born top of page
finally here everyone! Ashley Ann Duncan was born into this
world on March 27th, 2001 (only 5 day's after her dad's birthday). She
weighed 5 pounds, 5 ounces and is a little darling. She is such a gentle
and sweet baby, the nurses at the hospital argue over who can take care
of her for the night. (Hopefully that is the case, anyway.) She was
born 5 weeks premature and has a couple weeks stay at the hospital.
Mom was released Thursday (3/29), and is home recuperating. She did
a wonderful job!! For the full story and photos, please go to Ashley's
The OTHER New Member of our Family top of page
to be corny here, but I had to put our other new member of the
family here too, because it does have a significance of recent. <STORY>
Crystal left her job in January of this year and along with that, also
lost her company car. That was fine, because we were planning on having
her quit a couple months later anyway, to prepare for our baby's birth.
We got along fine with just one car for a while, but we knew that eventually
we would need another car before Ashley was born. We heard about a great
financing offer on new Chevy trucks that was going on, and headed to
the dealership on March 25th, just to look around. We ended up buying
that day, and thank God we did, because 2 days later Ashley was born!
This happened 5-1/2 weeks early, totally unexpected, and if we didn't
happen to have a 2nd vehicle, one of us would have been stranded when
Crystal's water broke. Wow, pretty good timing. I have always wanted
a full-size truck, and I love this one. This photo is taken in
front of our house. </STORY> Click on thumbnail for a larger
Baby shower for Crystal Duncan top of page
baby shower held for Crystal Duncan at her house this Saturday was a
great time for all who attended, and was a great turnout, even though
the weather in Denver made a turn for the worse. I will post a photo
album from the shower when we get the pictures developed, but for now,

Sad News for the Duncan Family top of page
Duncan, son of Angi Duncan, was tragically killed in an auto/pedestrian
accident on his way to school Friday morning in Spartanburg, SC. He
was riding his bicycle to school and was struck by an oncoming vehicle
in the opposite lane when he moved out of the way for a school bus to
pass. The driver of the vehicle did not have time to stop and the resulting
injuries were too severe to save him. Anthony was dearly loved by all
friends and family members and was a very special person to anyone and
everyone he knew. He would have turned twelve on the 29th of next month.
Memorial services will be held at Greenlawn Chapel, 2075 E. Main St.,
Spartanburg, SC at 5:00 PM Monday evening. In lieu of sending flowers,
Anthony's mother, Angi Duncan has requested a donation be made in
Anthony's name to Pennies
for Patients, a school-wide fundraiser to benefit The Leukemia
& Lymphoma Society, which Anthony himself has donated to out
of his own allowance money.

Angi has also
requested donations be sent to the Denver
Children's Hospital, where Anthony has been a patient many times.
