Bonita welcomed me to the Senior Center just like an old friend from day 1. We became special friends. There was never a Christmas that she didn't give me a gift and a card. Her handwriting was so beautiful. More than that she made me feel so special. She was one of the kindest people I have ever met and her spirit was just pure gold. We traveled a lot sitting at the table we called "chat circle". Now she has traveled to the wonderful place called Eternity . I will see her again one day . We will be together in heavens Eternity and she will give me a grand tour of Paradise. I will hug her like never before.

Bonita was such a precious soul, Always kind and gentle , pleasant to be around. I have sweet memories of being with her at the Senior Center. The Bible says “to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. “ therefore I believe that Bonita woke up in the presence of Jesus. I’m praying for you Scott and Joyce that you will find comfort in the promises of our Lord. Love you all.

God bless you.
