Even though Bunny was older, I can remember how nice she was to a little 8th grader just starting in the Greene County Marching Band many years ago. She made an impression that has lasted for many, many years.
Sending heartful prayers of healing to all of you.

May this dear family find comfort in knowing that you have all been invited by our loving Creator, "the God of all comfort," to "throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4; 1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 83:18) I hope you all take care and please accept my sincerest condolences.

Bunny was a fun person to know. We connected thru Miranda and Beegee as they were our favorite babysitters for our children. As I got to know Bunny she allowed me to teach several children swim lessons over the years at her backyard pool. We had some great visits then.
