PERRY - Kyle Bunge is being remembered for his unique artistry.  Bunge, 22, passed away March 6th after a long battle with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Click on the video thumbnail at the right to view his story.  Bunge was known for his custom made church bulletins and paintings at the Perry Christian Academy school.  He'd endured body casts, three metal rodsin his back and most recently, he'd lost the ability to lift his arms.  But he kept drawing.  His mother, Kay Bunge, would position his hand on the paper. 

"He still has his fine motor, so we have to be his large motor to move his hand and set the paper just right," said Kay Bunge from their home in Perry.

Kyle usually drew from a photograph or other visual aid but on this day, Sarah Hill found him sketching an angel.

"I'm just imagining what it might look like."

Memorials for Kyle Bunge may be sent to the Muscular Dystrophy  Association or the First Christian Church of Mexico, in care of Pickering Funeral Home, 403 N. Western, Mexico, MO 65265.
