My mother, Mary Tabata, is neighbors to the "Goody's". When I lived with my mother for a while, I got to meet Bona Jo and I will miss our talks and the way she would decorate the hallway between her place and in front of my mom's door. I miss how we would celebrate the U-U football team..."Go UTES!!". My mom and I will miss her very much. I am sorry I cannot attend the viewing or funeral due to prior engagements, but my deepest sympathies and prayers are with the entire family. Love,

FROM THE FAMILY
