My Aunt was/is a wonderful special lady. I know she's happy now and in a better place. She will be truly missed by Zane, Wanda, Christopher and many many others. I'm truly sorry for your loss.

Zane and Wanda just want to thank you for allowing me to care for Bun in her last few months of life. I have said this to so many people about how "sweet and loving" your momma was. She was such a blessing to my family and we are honored that we got the opportunity to know her. We will miss her kindness and smile as I know you all will. She is with her Scott now and at peace. Sheila
