I first met Bonnie at Cross Plains elementary school. She was a grade above me, but a small country school and you just get to know everyone! She was spirited and wearing cowboy boots. Made an impression on me. Many years later, we met again in church! Bonnie was courageous and a loving Christian and I thought what a difficult role it would be, to be a pastor's wife! She did it well; remembering those wonderful testimonies and the love she showed to all. God graced her, with a peaceful passing, he showered her with his peace and that joy, that only He can give. !!! I love you Bonnie, with that Godly love, He bestows upon us!! See you on the other side!! Jeorgia L Park Brassell
