To the entire Dunham family, I will miss June very much. As my sister Sherry wrote, we lived across the street from your Mom&Dad and Grandparents. All such lovely people. They are all missed, now.

To the Dunham Family,
My deepest sympathy on the passing of your beloved June. I loved her, too. She was my babysitter! I lived across the street from the wonderful Cummings family, and when June was a teenager, she sometimes babysat for my sisters and me. She was very skilled at sewing, and for a high school home ec project she made a dress for me. I was about 3 or 4 years old (I'm a grandma now) and i modeled the dress at the school fashion show. I remember shyly walking to center stage of the auditorium and staring at the audience. Then whispers came from backstage: "Turn around, turn around!" Obediently, I did a "180" and stood with my back to the audience. Everyone laughed! Then I heard another whisper, "Turn ALL the way around." I did. The audience applauded, and I was led off the stage. That was the end of my modeling career. I remember June with much love - she was so kind to me. And as an adolescent I enjoyed watching her deep love affair with Tony develop. I think I went to their wedding.
I hope that all of June's family will remember her with love, as i do.
