    The Hunter Family says:
    Ann, The Hunters and Bancrofts enjoyed being neighbors at Patriots Colony for many years. Our Dads talked often together about world affairs and our Moms probably wished that they would find something else to talk about! Your Mom was very kind to Shannon. We have a Christmas ornimant (a little teddy bear) that your Mom gave her. We pray for God's peace for you and your family.
