We have so many memories of Bonnie and her family since they came to Colorado. Their family became our family and we celebrated many events together. Our hearts may be empty right now but we rejoice she is at peace and living with her Lord and Saviour. God bless her loving children and grandchildren and may they share all their memories with each other and remember all the good times.
