Bonnie was a friend of mine from 1956. We always packed up our kids and headed to Bonnie's basement at the first warning of a tornado. We enjoyed many coffee mornings and crafting days. When I visit Lamar I will definitely miss visiting Bonnie. She was a very dear friend. My heart goes out to you boys. Wish I could be there to see you.

To all of Bonnie's family,
She was such a joy to know, and she could light up the hearts of others so easily. I have known her all my life, but had the opportunity to get to know her on a much closer basis several years ago. I have seen her from time to time, but hadn't as of late. I will miss her and the joy she shared with others. May you all be comforted by the memories you hold close to your heart.
