On Tuesday afternoon, a radar-confirmed tornado touched down near Sunbright, causing significant damage to several businesses, including Schubert Funeral Home. The owner of the funeral home, Billy Glen Kennedy, described receiving a call from a friend informing him that the business was destroyed.

Kennedy, who has worked at the funeral home for 40 years and owned it for the last 11 years, expressed his shock at the damage caused by the tornado. Although he heard a tornado warning, he did not think much of it as there was minimal wind or rain at his home just four miles away. Upon arriving at the funeral home and seeing the devastation, Kennedy expressed gratitude that no one was hurt in the tornado.

Despite the damage, Kennedy emphasized that material things can be replaced and that the safety of individuals is paramount. He noted that friends and the Sunbright community have offered their support, which he appreciates. The owner also mentioned that it is uncertain when the funeral home will reopen but services will continue in Wartburg.

Kennedy urged people to keep the community in their thoughts and thanked everyone for their support as he reflected on how grateful he is to have such a supportive network during this challenging time.
