Recent Condolence Notes

Friday, 8/31/2018
I am so sorry that Sunnie has passed away. We became friends when we were 10 years old and attended Campbell School. At around age 12 we had our first cigarette! Sunnie had a Saint Bernard and needless to say, he had a huge dog house. Sunnie and I along with another friend went into this big dog house and smoked a whole pack of Camel's!! At that time a pack of Camel's was 39 cents per pack and you could write a note, sign your mother's name, and give it to the clerk who would then give you the Camel's. We did not get caught but never did that again. I live in Florida now and Sunnie would usually call me when she and Mort came down for the winter. We were recently talking about the cigarette escapade! For Sunnie's beautiful family, I extend my deepest sympathies. My email is: cdwpie@yahoo.com Sincerely, Carole D. Robbins Wilson.
