Sorry that this took me so long.

  2. Dan Bunker says:

    My father Arthur Bunker was one of a kind he taught me everything I know, growing up he always took us to cape cod every summer took us fishing and always spent time with us later we used to go to constantines where we would spend the summer he always made sure we had fun, as I grew up he taught me all aspects of carpentry he answered my million questions and took the time to show me down to the last detail, later on my dad and I built a house for my family in Salem NH he was there with me every step of the way, he was proud when I got a job in masonry and started working with him on side jobs together he was surprised on how much I had learned and I told him I learned from you because you were always there for me no matter what, I could go on for hours on the kind of person he was there isn’t enough time in this world for me to truly express how important my dad was to me and will always be in my heart forever, I love you dad, until we meet again.
