My condolences to all. We lived across the street and were friends with Pam, Ray, and Paul. Bunny
always made me feel welcome in her home. I liked her. She was respectful to us even though she was an adult and we were kids/teens. She never talked down to us. An intelligent women, she had time for some good talks between us. Last time I saw her was outside the EH senior center a few years back. Had a great conversation. I appreciated her advice.

I work night shift , 12 hours per shift with travel time and not enough sleep. Car trouble followed that consumed two half days on two different lifts. At work we have to turn phones off and lock them away for the duration. Heard about this last minute. Unable to see you all. Wish I could have.
