If ever there was a family that turned a whole bushel of lemons into lemonade, it’s the Bunnells of Chula Vista. The five Bunnell children lost their father, a career Navy man, to skin cancer in 2007. In 2010, their mother passed away of colon cancer.
It was a combination of parental foresight and a strong faith that carried them through the hard times and even gave them a future that would not only see to it they were not separated for even a day, but would have a future as musicians.
