    Joan, Birdie, Dick and family, I'm so sorry for your loss. Bunk was a wonderful man, I know he will be greatly missed by many. I remember so well how he and Mr. Lee would gather around the old wood heater talking with papa and drinking that strong coffee. They loved to hunt and tell hunting stories. May God give you peace and comfort.
