It is rare but once in a while you can meet someone for the first time and they make you feel so welcomed and at home. Even though you have only known them for a short time, you connect so well that you feel like you have been with them all your life.
Well Bonnie was that person to us. She was just a sweet person with a smile that could light up the room. Even before we met her, our brother Billy and his wife Diane (who are Bonnie and Stan's Neighbors) were constantly telling us how great these people are and couldn't wait for us to meet them. Well, one day we did get to meet them and Bonnie turned out to be even better than their praise for her.
We feel blessed to have had the time (short as it was) to get to know her. We know she is going to be greatly missed.
Our sincere condolences go out to you Stan and your family. May your fond and happy memories of Bonnie far out weigh the pain you are feeling now.
Love, Marilyn and Ron

We are totally heartbroken and shaken from Bernadette’s shocking phone call to us in Florida - bonnie and I spoke the day before and ed and I were looking foreword to meeting up with Stan and Bonnie very soon in Florida - bonnie was my wonderful friend and we could chat forever about our love for our families and everything else . Bonnie was as much a sister to me since I never had one - I loved her very much - I am so so sorry for our friend Stan who is devestated I know - he is a fabulous person and friend and my love to her family for the loss of Bonnie - I will pray for her and miss my friend all the days of my life - how I wish I were home to come and meet all of you -
