There are no words to describe the love and compassion for Bonnie "Dee" Simpson. Her heart was always open to everyone and the memories of Dee will last forever in our hearts.
There are too many memories to share, but I will always remember the visits to San Diego when they could and my delight when we three could go to Claudia's in Simpsonville for Lunch.
Dee will be missed by everyone whose lives she touched. Prayers to Lee and the family. Many blessings, Charlie (San Diego)

Bonnie was such a wonderful nurse in L&D. We worked together on the same shift for several years. She taught me a lot and had such a sense of humor. Bonnie delivered my second child because the doctor hadn’t arrived yet. I will always hold her in a special spot in my heart. My sympathy to Fran and your family. Prayers being sent for healing after this great loss.❤️🙏
