Mom I know you and I didn’t see eye to eye on a lot of the things in my life. I just need you to know that I love you and your beautiful smile will be missed. I would have loved to have seen you more over that last few years but just couldn’t make it out to you and I regret that. You made me who I am and I hope you are proud of your family. Mom, I love you and I will miss you. Rest In Peace. Love you always your son, John

My sweet Auntie Bunny! My absolute favourite person when I was a small child - she was like a second mother to my brothers and I. I adored her so much - so kind, sweet and beautiful...sprinkled with just the right amount of toughness. So many fond memories - sending love to you and your families, Steve and John. She was one of a kind. xoxo

May you Rest In Peace, auntie Bunny, knowing how greatly you were loved by so many, near and far.

When I remember Bunny what comes to mind right away is her smile and her laugh. She was always happy to see us and have us in her home. I admired her dedication and love for her grandchildren and her family, she cared so deeply for her loved ones. Bunny you will be missed and never forgotten. May you Rest In Peace. ❤️

I am going to miss her very much. My heart goes out to all of you.
