I'm very sorry to hear that Bonnie has passed away. Back in the late 70's, I got to know her well as I was student teaching at Hannah; not only did she treat me like her professional peer, she was just a beautiful woman, both inside and out. I will always have a warm spot in my heart for Bonnie.

Bonnie took me in when I had no place to go. Treated me like family & dear friend. She never asked for anything in return but I owed her the world for her kindness . She will forever hold a beautiful and cherished place in my heart. Prayers and sympathy to her entire family. She will be dearly missed ! Truly
