    My long and trusted friend since 1976. So many good times I and others spent together. Missing in obituary: June was a La Porte Community Schools dedicated school bus driver for many years. Also surviving a trusted caregiver Kelly was not mentioned. We have been friends for a long time and I feel these things should be mentioned. I will miss June.
