Bonnie was a good friend who shared her knowledge with others, whether it was needlepoint or recipes (my favorite, salad olives and pecans). She was a lovely person who cherished her religion and can now see the Face of God..

I will cherish the many memories of my travels with Bonnie to indulge in our passion for needlework. She was so loved by her Embroidery Guild and Needlepoint Guild friends. And she always had a recipe to share.
My love to Gene because I know what it is like to lose the love of your life. I pray for comfort during this very difficult time.

I remember when Heather was born she and Gene came to the house and was very sweet and kind. They both told stories of when Denise was little

Also I remember at the reunions she was always bubbly and happy to see everyone.
