Bonnie was alway my favorite. She was my cousin but I always looked at her as an aunt. We had a lot of things in common as I got older I will miss her very much and I love you Bonnie. And Bailey I’m here if you need me. I love you.

It's been a long time since I last saw Bonnie but I was blessed with her friendship when I was little. I will always remember playing in the Yampa, the smell of railroad ties, making forts from haybales, sleepovers and riding horses. She was an amazing friend and she will be greatly missed.

Prayers and love to her family and friends.

I’ll always remember the countless days hanging out by the pool soaking up all the sun we could get. The good times and the bumps in the road. I’ll never forget her laugh or her beautiful smile.
RIP Bonnie. We will see each other again one day. I love you girl .

So thankful I got to meet this wonderful lady. Although it’s hard that’s she’s not here with us anymore, I know she’s looking down watching all over us... especially you Bailey. Love you so much.
