Editorial - Monday, September 2: Bunny will be missed

BEING relatively new to Grafton I did not have the pleasure of meeting the city's "unofficial mayor", Bunny Daley.

But after hearing he had died and the subsequent reaction, it's obvious he was well- known and loved; a bit of a local legend in fact.

Official Mayor Richie Williamson definitely has some great yarns about his mate "Bun" and spoke so fondly of helping Mr Daley celebrate his 60th birthday a couple of years ago.

As I continued to speak to other people about Bunny, it really became clear so many felt the same way.

Our thoughts go out to Bunny's family and friends at this difficult time.

Losing someone is obviously never easy but I hope that they can take some comfort in knowing that Bunny was well-loved and respected in the community and that his legacy will undoubtedly live on.

We will have more of a tribute to Bunny in the coming days, so if you have any great stories you would like to share with us, please give us a call.
