She was my neighbor, who lived behind me. So many wonderful memories. I got the benefit of her flower gardens that continually had blooms and beauty throughout the seasons. She often helped me by sharing her knowledge. I felt blessed to have her friendship. One day she planted a tiny redbud tree near one of the pine trees with the intent it would replace that pine tree. It has grown into a beautiful tree which has become a great memory. I will always miss her and our meetups in the common area between our 2 patios. Prayers and blessings to the family as they go through their loss.

A wonderful and thoughtful friend of our family for 50+ years. We enjoyed so many Saturday evenings with a cocktail, grilled strip steaks and lots of great conversation. Thanks you for being such a good friend, Bunny. Bill Cutler and Mona and Harold Cutler.
