My deepest, heartfelt sympathy to Bonnie’s daughters and family. She will always be in my memories, attached to the times in our lives of major life beginnings.
Bonnie and I became friends and roomies after high school. Bonnie, me, and my sister, living in North Hampton, across from a farm. We had some good times when young and single! Her and I were out one evening with a gang from Data General, and it was then that I met the guy that would become my husband. Not long after, Bonnie met Bill, and I stood up as matron of honor at their wedding. She was a beautiful bride! We both shared the births of our first born daughter’s. Then we moved, they moved, and we went on raising our families.
We reconnected some years ago and have kept in touch from time to time.
I know how difficult it’s been to say goodbye to Bill, and now to say goodbye to Bonnie. Rest In Peace my dear friend. Girls, find strength in your grief, and build from what mom and dad wanted for you.. to have fulfilling lives surrounded by love and success.
