I am so very sorry. I was so shocked when I heard about Bonnie. I worked with her over 9 years at Wal-Mart. She was a very special person and loved her family so much. I had the opportunity to talk with her for a while last December in at Kohl’s. Her daughters had taken her out shopping. I will cherish that conversation. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. I loved Bonnie and will miss her very much.
