  2. With great sadness and tears, our prayers and thoughts are with our family during this difficult time. Papa, brothers, sisters, and family, please know that we would be there if we could. Bunny was, and is, a beautiful soul who will be sorely missed. She was always ready to reach out to someone in need and offer a kind word. I remember sitting around the kitchen table and listening to her infectious laugh. My Gods love comfort you in this hour.
