Memories Timeline


  1. For more than 55 years I have had the pleasure of knowing Priscilla. While living in Asheville through my high school years and returning to Asheville to visit family after moving away to college and a career, Priscilla was always part of my life and those visits. Her warm, welcoming smile and heartfelt hugs were there each time we were together….you could count on them, always. Her kindness, consideration and pure goodness were evident in a non-assuming way but you knew they were there. Priscilla, Charles and my Mother were indeed the three musketeers…..they’re all together now so they can continue their escapades. Bunnie and I have been close friends since high school and together with the entire Silver family have been a valuable part of my life for decades. Rest in peace.

  2. I am very sorry to hear of the passing of a dear neighbor. She was so good and optimistic. I will never forget the story Charles told of how they met. She had gone to a function where she met Charles. She came on a bicycle and Charles would not let her ride the bicycle home. He gallantry escorted her home in his vehicle.

  3. I love this dear friend like a sister. My prayers and love go to Bunnie, Polly, Rick, Lola and Ricky. Someday soon!

  4. I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. You losing your best friend is hard to do. You have a wonderful family support.

  5. I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. You can never be prepared no matter how long you try.You have a strong family for support. Peace be with you.

  6. Dearest Bunnie and family, please accept my most sincere condolences over the loss of your Mother. You are a devoted and loving family and your Mother received only the best from you. I know how terrible it is when your Mother passes away. Your Mother had a lot of accomplishments which is evidenced by your love. She was a lovely lady. Love, Lois Michalove.

  7. Bunnie and Polly, your mother was such an inspiration to me. She was always so kind and had that twinkle in her eye that you knew you had her full attention. She was willing to share her artist talent and knowledge with everyone yet never expected anything in return other than a smile and a “thank you”. She will be greatly missed by all of her many admirers and friends. I just know that she and your Daddy are so happy that they are united again. Much love to both of you and your family.

  8. Love to you beautiful ladies from Libby that worked for the Bakers. I loved your Mom and Dad very much. They will missed. Love Always, Sincerely, Libby,Anna and Jasmine
