Bonnie you were always a strong person, and always well dressed no matter where you were going.
You are so beautiful inside and out. I have so many memories from my childhood up to a adult, I will miss all your deserts you always sent down to me and my family. That is just one of the many other memories I have of you. You raised a daughter (DONNA) who is one of a kind, Donna is a very special person who all knew of her kindness and would drop everything to help our neighborhood in every aspect that was needed when asked and even if not asked. She is one of a kind. I know Bonnie you and dad Charles will be watching over her and be so proud. All you family have all been there for everyone.. Now is the time you be with GOD and Charles Russell. Gosh I have never before have so much more memories of your family, I will always keep close to my heart. Time to rest now and be with GOD and past family members.
Love from Sheila Wells,
Barbara, and Clyde Wells 💛
