My first memories of Suzanne are from before we went to kindergarten. Our moms were friends and we would play together. I have many fond memories of our school days together. Suzanne was a kind and gracious person. Sending prayers to her family.

Becca & family- I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Bunton passing. I will never forget visiting the Bunton family farm with Becca during our internship 5 years ago. She was so kind & welcoming & made me feel right at home. Heaven just got sweeter. You are all in my thoughts and prayers!
