Peggy's brother, Pete Brock, said Thomas loved the outdoors, and treated his family well.
“Just one of those types of guys that you can fuss at all day long and turn around and say, 'Hey can you help me do this?' He’d be right there,” Brock said.
A friend of Thomas Bundy, Roger Winstead, said he will miss hunting with him.
“He was just a friendly man, kind, nice as he could be, and he would do anything for you,” Winstead said.
Peggy and Jesse have been released from the hospital. Peggy's brother said the family is making sure to take good care of them.
“We got a large family, it's just one of those things we wish wouldn’t have ever happened, but we will all get over it,”Brock said.
