So sad to hear of the passing of my 1st cousin June. We only met a few times in my lifetime but she was loved by my parents, her Uncle Bud and Aunt Thelma Taylor and all my siblings. My oldest sister Thelma June Taylor-Fonte and June were real close and for many years they went on vacations touring historical places together. She will be missed and prayers from my family to the Bezdan family.

Cousin, Carol, David and children
