Roger, Sandy and Family, We were so sorry to hear of Roger's father passing. We only met him once when we visited you all on our vacation to Utah. He was such a nice friendly person, and after our Dad passed away Sandy you were lucky enough to call Roger's Dad your's as well. I know how much he meant to you God bless you all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you both, the kids and the whole Bunn family. Love, Al and Donna

Cheryl and Ken,I was so incredibly saddened to hear of Ken's father's passing. Cancer is so unforgiving and cruel. I hope that some day with the Lord's help we can find a cure for this awful disease. I am sure Walter was a wonderful father, husband, and grandfather. My deepest and most sincere feelings and thoughts go to you in this time of trial at Walters passing. As you grieve it is wonderful to have the knowledge that life is eternal and we will once again be reunited with our loved ones in a future day. May the Lord Bless and comfort you. My prayers are with you that he will. Thanks for all you do for us Cheryl and the wonderful example you are.Kevin Dabb

Ken and Cheryl,Although I wasn't lucky enough to know your father personally, I feel like I knew him through conversations with Cheryl and stories of your childhood. Ken I know how painful it is to loose a parent. I hope for you that the closeness of your family and the love and support you give each other will help you recall the wonderful memories and great times you shared with him.Love,Sherry
