Bonnie Jordan

January 15, 2020

So many memories growing up from every Christmas morning, every holiday, every family event, or just hanging out at home...to dancing on her feet in the kitchen when i was a little girl. Where she is now, i can only hope there is an abundance of coffee ice cream, puppies everywhere and she is reuinited with Jimmy...the love of her life. I will miss you Nan but there was no real life for you in this world anymore. My heart will always remember the little things like when you would say "poor lil bugga" and "oh for Heaven's sake" or how cute your little feet were, and how much you loved a good hug, and how you would always show us how cold your hands were and how you loved Judge Judy and her take no crap attitude. Until we meet again, please watch over all of us. I love you Nannie <3
