I am so thankful that I had the chance to know you! You were always so sweet, and helping everyone else out before you even did anything for yourself. I will miss seeing your sweet face when I go to the college, I will miss catching up on things about eachothers family. I will miss you showing off all of your grandkids pictures that you had such an abundance of. You were always so proud of everyone in your family. May you rest in peace and may God Bless each and everyone in your fammily and may he put his hand upon each one of them to help get them through this difficult time.

I have told you in the past you were the best mom and friend anyone could have. Everyone in your family were so lucky to have you everyday. You told me once, you thought of me as your daughter, I thank you for all you did for me in my life. I will see you again in glory. Jesus is so lucky right now to have you sitting at his right hand. I LOVE YOU MOMMA BONNIE.
