Grandma, Bonnie. Some bright morning when this life is over, I'll fly away. And that's what you did. You flew away to God's pasture. The sun was just waking up a new day and you flew away. I'm so happy you feel no more pain. You didn't deserve the pain you went through, but no matter what tried to beat you down; you held your head up and you fought through the pain and sadness to be the grandma everyone loves. I feel everyone's emotions for you. And it breaks my heart and give me comfort to know that so many people had true love for you. That's what give me happiness. I love you and even though I didn't get much time with you. I'll fly away fly away oh glory I'll fly, when I die hallelujah by and by. I'll fly away!

I always loved how much love you would give. You are my best grandma and I miss you so bad. I wish I could find the right words to tell you how I feel but I can't. You took care of me and taught me many life lessons and I wouldn't be who I am without all your teachings. I love you Grandma and I know you are at peace.
