I will always remember how proud Mama Dunn was of her family. She loved sharing her proud stories working at Disney. She had a real appreciation for her life in the Florida sunshine and flowers. She also loved sharing her fond childhood memories of Winston Salem, NC. Mama Dunn loved to dress to a tee and was a true Southern lady. Phil and Tony, may it bring you comfort to know she is finally at peace. No more pain and no more tears.
