    Sweet Bunny...

    From the first time I met you,  I fell  in love with you.  You were such a sweet,  loving,  caring woman.  Seeing you with your kids and grandkids always put a smile on my face.  I'm so thankful you are not suffering anymore and that you were greeted with open arms from those who have went before you.   You'll be greatly missed by so many...Rest in Paradise , with much love,  Amy

    Brenda, Rhonda and Deanna- I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. Heaven has definitely gained an angel though!! :) I have many fond memories of Aunt Bunny. One of my most favorite was when we would arrive early on a Saturday morning to go fishing with Uncle Tom. I would anxiously await to leave the house to hit our fishing spot. Before that would take place, the adults would consume about three pots of coffee. My favorite thing to partake in was Egg McMinnich's that Aunt Bunny would make special for us. She was a wonderful cook!! Until we meet again...... Love, Charlie Brown :)

    I was literally recently thinking of Bunny. I always enjoyed going to her checkout at HyVee. One time we got chatting about Thanksgiving stuffing and a I shared with her my recipe for crockpot dressing. She was a sweet lady. Sympathy and prayers to all of her family and friends during this difficult time.
