Bonnie was not just a sister to me, she was my best friend. I will greatly miss her and our long talks. She was a wonderful loving person who loved her husband Garland and all her family & friends. She never said a negative thing in her life. Bonnie loved all animals. My children and her Sunday school children (she taught for many years) were like her own. Bonnie was a true Christian, I will truly miss you. I love you and will see you again one day.

I will always be grateful for all the time we spent together in my youth. All the trips to sleepy creek fishing and to the battlefields in Va and rides back on skyline drive. Taking me to see The Fox and the Hound when I was very young. I still have the bible you got me for summer bible school that you took me to every year. Thank you for always being there. You and uncle Gardy will always be in my thoughts and prayers as you always have. Wish I had more time with you in my adult years but life got in the way. I will miss you forever. Say hi to pap and grandma for me. I love you!! I'll see you again someday.
