    Some of my fondest childhood memories in the 70’s were of spending time with your family on weekends in San Jose when we were still living in TI. Ultimately, we moved to SJ and attended the same school as Linda & Boboy. Imagine what a treat it was for Robbie and me to spend after school everyday with our cousins. It was Uncle Bon who looked after us, cooked our snacks, and frequently took us to our favorite restaurant, McDonald’s, where he ordered “Chicken Mac” and “Whooper,” much to our chagrin. In the 80’s, Linda, Robbie, and I couldn’t help but laugh at Uncle Bon when he poked fun at Linda’s favorite band at the time, “Duran Duran-go”. I also remember how he would call every cat in your household “Keeeeehhht!” even though they had real names. It is these little recollections that will make me miss his quirky and distinctively Cunanan sense of humor. Thank you for the funny memories, Uncle Bon. Heartfelt condolences to you, Auntie Glor, Linda, Boboy, and Susie. May the memory of his kindness and sense of humor bring you comfort and solace. Much love from Renelyn, Quang, Ryan, and Allyson.
