Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this difficult time, Aunt Bonnie was a wonderful person who always greeted our family with a smile, especially at all the family reunions we had at Richfield park. Her and Uncle Pete were great to visit with along with all the rest of the family. I'm sure Uncle Pete was waiting for her to join him in heaven. God Bless all of you....
