Easter Sunday was the perfect day for you to join Don in God’s heavenly embrace! We will miss you greatly and Bunco will not be the same. Your laughter will always be with us and your zest for life we hope to emulate.

It was such a pleasure knowing Penny and Don. They were always laughing and bringing light into the room. Bunco was always a little more hilarious with Penny in the room, that's for sure. We are thankful for the time we had with them.

We rejoice knowing they are reunited again, in the light and love of our Lord. May they rest in eternal peace and may perpetual light shine upon them.
