Article about Hyatt Bunn.
It is called:

For Hyatt Bunn, 9 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. H. M.
Bunn, 345 East Baker Street, this has been no ordinary
Christmas vacation. It passed well out of that realm
Christmas morning when Hyatt, tossing peables and idly
kicking what ever might catch his eye along the railroad
tracks near the sale barn on Clayton Street spied a
garter snake scurrying toward a ditch.

The throwing (something, I can't read it) earnest then.
Later the 26 inch body of the snake lay motionless. It
was dead. A few good shots had done the work.

Hyatt's heart pounded and his head in its brown
aviator's helmet was held high as he carried home the
prize. Stalking a snake is something. Stalking a snake
on a warm Christmas day when the wiggler would have
ordinarily have hibernated month's ago is all epoch in a
boy's life. This has been no ordinary vacation for
Hyatt Bunn.

He founded a program for the elderly at Baywood-a retire-
ment place that he and Ruth and also his second wife
lived until their timely deaths. The program was to help
with orderly and precision if we would have a disaster
happen. They would have supplies and needed things
in hand Also how to get out of the building savely
and quickly.

I will be adding articles as found.

He has received alot of get well notes and Christmas cards
that I would love to share with you fall.
From family as well as many friends.

First one is from his friends-Harwood and Betty Hall
living at Baywood:

August 8, 2002
Our Dear Hyatt,
Just a note to let you know that you are in our
thoughts and prayers daily.
You will be glad to know that several of our nurse
friends have really pitched in and brought our First
Aid Corps to life. Materials have been updated and I
think we are all ready for action.
Take care, dear friend, and may our God Bless you.
With our love.

The next one is also from Baywood from his friends:

Hope you're feeling better
In every single way.
You're thought about and missed
each and every day.

We all miss you--
Baywood Court Residents

This next one is from Virginia (his second wife)

You know sometimes it's hard to take the risk of
truly caring about another person, but I'm really
glad I took that risk with you-
From the very beginning you understood exactly how
I felt. And in time, I realized that loving you
could only make me feel warm and safe and good-
That's why this spring I want to thank you for your
gentleness and caring-
and especially for being the wonderful person that
I'm so very happy to love, HAPPY EASTER,
Love always, Virginia

The next one is from some of his and Virginia's friends-

The nicest Christmas gift cannot be bought but can be
given...Virginia and Hyatt...The gift of Love
Merry Christmas Happy New Year,
Love, Gary, Dianne, Jen and Ashley

The next one is from his sister, Dorothy

Merry Christmas, Hyatt. Just sending a little gift to
remember me by. I love you. Your Sis, Dorothy

Also this next one is from Dorothy-

Happy Birthday, Hyatt
Love from your Sis, Dorothy
I am slowly getting better. Nurses are coming to the
house and taking blood etc., so I don't have to go to
the Dr. office.
