Bonnie was an amazing woman and raised some amazing kids. She was sweet and kind and was wonderful to be around. The world is a little sadder without her in it. My heart goes out to all of you and had I known about this sooner, I would have been there to support you in person. Sending all my love and praying for all of you!

Shane, Betsy, and Rob,
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Bonnie was a very special lady, and we are thankful for her friendship. Sorry I can't be with you today. Dad started chemo and radiation yesterday, so I am off with him.
In Christ,
Tim Dills
