Aunt Bonnie loved to laugh and could find something to laugh about no matter how hard the times. She had the tenacity of a bulldog and she taught me that when you get knocked down you always get up. A lesson that has pushed me through some very hard times in my life. We were all very fortunate to have loved and been loved by her.
