I will miss the sweety the room always lit up when Mr. Bunny walked in a room. Not knowing then but a couple of years I learned of huge thing him and Mrs. Jan and that is the beautiful love between 2 people and the love for others. My Prayers to the family for comfort. I can at least have comfort in not saying good by Mr. Bunny but see you later.

I’ve known Bunny since he became family when I was a toddler over sixty years ago. He was always understanding, funny, and loving to his sons, my cousins. He found his kindred spirit and love with Jan. She was truly a blessing. My heart goes out to his loved ones as he will be missed. Gone too soon.
