Robert Wesley Bunn Jr.
May 23, 1918- June 10, 2012
An ending of a generation in the Bunn family has given me the sense that my generation is on deck. We are the grandparents now and there is no cushion in front of us.
My heart was saddened to know that my Grandmother‘s brother passed away in June of 2012. I haven’t spoken about his passing too much, as I think and ponder why I didn’t pursue the urgency of speaking with him a little more often. I did however speak with him a few months before his illness got the best of him. At this point, his memory was not as strong, but my Great Grand Uncle Robert did speak with me about his days on the plantation in Lake Providence, Louisiana and Arkansas.
I was not able to attend the Celebration of Life for Robert W. Bunn, Jr., but was pleased however to have received the program card from my cousin Wes, Robert’s son.
