Bonnie-Anne, Remembering joyful gatherings with you and your mother at
the cottage on Lake Ontario. We enjoyed
oodles of good food, spirited conversation and we laughed until our
sides ached! May your faith and warm
memories sustain you.

Bonnie My thoughts and prayers are with you at this most difficult time. Your MoM was such a wonderful woman.I did her hair for years when i worked in Brockport and then she would come to my house in Spencerport, (never without a treat for my dog). She talked quite a bit of how you would ask her what do you think about going here on vacation, and the cottage. She had an awesome smile , you have many great memories to charish.
God Bless You ,Lynn JOhns

Bonnie Anne - My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I know how devoted you were to your Mother.I have fond memories of her when we would come to your cottage for our summer luncheons as well as when she would come into the high school to see you. She was a wonderful, fun loving and kind person. I will remember her bright smile. It was truly a pleasure to have known her.
