I met Bonnie when I worked at The Book Rack in Lafayette. Bonnie loved to read and she would come in often to look at the new releases but also to visit. I'm not the most outgoing person, but Bonnie was so easy to talk to and so funny that I couldn't help but visit right back. She soon became one of my favorite people and it wasn't just me, everyone loved her. On Friday nights the employees would go out to dinner and Bonnie would always come and have a good time with us.

Even after I got another job and moved to New Iberia, Bonnie and I still kept in touch. We'd talk on the phone every couple of months to gossip or laugh or cry, depending on what was going on at the time. She was such a warm person and I'll miss her, but I'm grateful too for having her as a friend. I just wanted to share that.
