I am so sorry for the lost or Rabbit, growing up together it's really hard to lose a neighbor and friend. It's going to be really hard on you, but with God's help you will live on one day at a time. I am certainly praying that God will give you, Jerry, and Jean piece of mind through this.
Love you all.
