  10. Mary C Brownlie says:

    To Earl and family, Was heartbroken to hear of Bunny,s passing. I first met Bunny when we both worked on Shedd 1 at LGH during the summer prior to us entering the school of nursing in Sept of 51. The two of us together we’re most troublesome for our head nurse who spent the first half of the day telling us we were going to be horrible nurses and the other half trying to find us. After work we would get ice cream and then swim in the quarry. Because of her, it remained one of my best summer ever. Will treasure the memories always. Mary C Bradford Brownlie.
