Tina and Brandy my dear friends I am so sorry for your loss. When I heard your mom had passed I thought back to high school and hanging out with your family at the camp ground that one summer. This was the first time I had ever heard of the game bunco. Your mom then loved playing that game. We now play it in our house from time to time. I know that you are sad but this was a happy memory I had of your mom. She was fun and spunky and I am glad I got to meet her.
