Dear Ms. Bunton, Danny, Wendy, & Sonja:
I’m so very sorry to hear of your loss. Mr. Bunton was a
very good man and always nice to me in our childhood
years, when I was over at Granddaddy Tiny’s and Nanny
Jacks house(next door) on the weekends. If there’s anything
that I can do, please email me and I’ll help if I can. I’m still
living in North Myrtle Beach. I love and miss y’all!

With Sympathy,
Vickie Clark Standridge

My condolences go out to the Bunton family. We have good remembrances of all of the family from the Bayview days and beyond. I enjoyed working with Andrew as one of his Royal Ambassador Counselors and with all of the R.A. boys. When Andrew's job caused him to move away for a while, I was fortunate to take over his role as the R.A. Director. I will always remember his dedication to Bayview and the R.A. program. God bless each of the children (Danny, Wendy, & Sonja) and the extended family.

Danny, Sonja and Wendy,
You are in my thoughts and prayers at this time. Your Dad was a fine, Christian man.
We enjoyed him and your Mom during the time we were all at Bayview Baptist Church.
He and Elizabeth are rejoicing in Heaven.
Sending love to all of you.
