The pink bunny will be moving from Lake Como Park. A neighbor there has been accusing me of violating monuments and memorials policies at the city. I did not, but I do not want my dear Chase ' s memory to be violated by mean spirited people. To his numerous friends who donated, fear not! The Colonialtown Neighborhood Association voted unanimously last night to put the statue in the playground in their park. To my many dear friends in Lake Como, I am not upset with you. I did get angry at the mean things people said about the statue. Sometimes people forget that I am human, and was grieving the loss of someone I loved very much. Some people had no respect. But that is their problem.The bunny statues were the subject of a video report put together by Sentinel reporter Jon Busdeker last year. You can watch the video below.
Chase's, memory will live on in the giddy laughter of children searching for Easter eggs in the shadow of the pink bunny.
