My deepest sympathies and fond memories on the passing of Bunny. Bunny and Charlie were both very good to my wife Meg and I when we were tenants on the first floor of Josephine ave. Listening to the battle of music between Bunny working on ceramics in the basement listening to her music while we had the Stones blaring in our apartment. We had a lot of laughs. RIP Bunny and rest easy with your beloved Charlie.

Donna, I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one is always so painful. I didn't know your mother well but I remember her from our days at the Brown School when we were just mere children. It's funny the memories we are left with but I always thought your mother was so regal and elegant. She will always be for me. May she rest in peace.
