Sending my deepest sympathy to the family. Mrs. Bonnie was a precious lady. She had a very special way of making everyone feel welcome and loved. I am thankful to have known her, spent holidays and nephew’s birthdays with her, and loved her. Prayers for comfort for the family through the days ahead.

Aunt Bonnie always loved to tell me how her and my Mama were both in the hospital at the same time delivering babies. The nurses would take me to her room and Danny to Mama’s. She sent word to tell Mama to name me Connie Sue as that was what she had picked out for her baby. I loved Aunt Bonnie so much and always enjoyed my time with her. She was so fun and loving to be around. R.I.P. Aunt Bonnie I love you and will see you again one day.
