  1. I grew up with Bobby until we were about three years old. I remember Bunny making us snacks and laughing at our antics. Bobby, I cant believe it has been two years all ready. I wish we had connected in these years. Remember, my mom was good friends with yours and they played bridge often. Life was good on Espinosa Circle. My dad, Victor Brown, passed away this week, and it made me want to reach out and give you a hug. Gee Gee and Goo Goo still ride. Love Eternal, Kevin

  2. Dear Palomba Family, I have not seen Bunny for over 25 years but she held a very special place in my heart. When I became a member of St. Lawrence Martyr parish in 1961,Bunny was the FIRST person to call and invite me to a welcoming lunch.She was such a hospitable hostess and before long I too was busy “working” at St. Lawrence. In the years to follow I took over Bunny’s job as Religion Coordinator of the Parish Guilds. She was so kind and generous with her time and talent—but then I am sure you all know how wonderful she was to all. Throughout the years I have thought of Bunny and missed her when she left SLM.It was with sadness that I read of her passing. I attended the funeral to pray and say farewell to someone who I admired. Please accept my prayers and condolences for your great loss.Bunny was memorable and I thank the Lord for having shared a few precious days with such an inspiring “Church Lady” Blessings
