To the family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I only learned about Bonnie's passing today and am saddened. I worked with her at the nursing home for many years. So was always so much fun to work with and just one of the nicest people I have ever met.

I am really going to miss my best friend all through school. We were both "tom boys" & lived sports. Will never forget our football-like basketball game in the 6th grade. What fun. And thanks to Bonnie (Lou Lou) I was able to join the band & play French horn beside my friend for over 6 years. We had so many great memories. Condolences to Bob & little Bob, Lea, Renee & families. What a privilege to have had Bonnie in my life.
