My thoughts and prayers are with John and the kids, along with all of Sunshine's family and friends. A kind soul with a beautiful spirit, she will be missed by all who knew her. I appreciate her and John, and the Backroads Band supporting my fundraising efforts for my missing childhood friend, Kathy Sue Wilcox. Their support showed how big their hearts are and their willingness to give back to the community. Sunshine was an outstanding person, mother, wife, friend, daughter, sister, niece, aunt, cousin, and her love and caring for others shined just like her name. May she rest in peace.
