Cheryl & Family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I remember her as such a wonderful person, so lively and tolerant of us girls while we were growing up! What wonderful memories she made....

With warmest regards and sympathy,

Amos, I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. My condolences to your family. May faith, hope, and love fortify and uplift you at this sorrowful time.

Dear Sandy,Cheryl and Amos, I am so sorry for your loss. Bunny and I have been friends for 40 years. She was always so much fun and I am deeply saddened. I regret not being able to visit with you in person because we are in Florida. Love to you, Faith and Darrell DeGraw

Our condolences to the family. She was a special person and a dear friend to our cousin Cec Rohloff. We will never forget her.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I knew Bunny from Sears and we had many breakfasts together. I am sorry I will not be able to attend her funeral as I am in Florida and will not be home.

Sandy, my deepest sympathy.

We were sorry to hear about Bunny's passing. From all of the Forbeck family we send our condolences.
We all agree that she was a lot of fun to be around. All of my children have good memories of her. I myself still remember her bedtime stories which she told when we were young at the old farmhouse.
Thank you for the extensive Obituary. It gave me new perspectives about her life.
Again, our condolences.


I consider it a great privilege to have known Bunny. She had a beautiful spirit. My sympathies to your family. I know that se will be missed.

My sincerest condolences to the Leatherman family. Bunny was a phenomenal neighbor, friend, confidante, and had a fantastic sense of humor.

I will never forget spending many hours with Bunny, Bert, and their wonderful children I so admired... Also stories of Bunny sending Mom flying down the street behind Andy, connected to his leash, and the day Mom told Amos that his mother cooked the Easter Bunny.

Thank you, Bunny for being a shoulder I could cry on. I hope you know...
