I will surely miss the smile and wonderful laugh of my cousin Bonnie. She was beautiful inside and out. The Rickard family was a special family. We are sending our deepest condolences to Bonnie's family which is special also. Love, Lois (Rickard) & Charles Grof

I have wonderful memories of my Aunt. We had lots of fun together ... we listened to Wayne Newton, we ran around in the green Corvair, and we were young together. In later years we talked just about everyday. we talked about the weather, the humming birds, crops and life. I had a person who loved me, was happy for me and encouraged me to do all I could while I could. I already miss her ... just want to say her love will always be a part of me. I can’t wait to see her again.

I remember going to my aunts farm and riding mini bikes and spending the night with my cousins. It was always fun going to the farm and being with family. I will miss her dearly and my thoughts go out to my cousins and all of my family during this time of loss.
