I am so sorry to hear of Bonnie's passing. I sat right behind Bonnie in Word Processing at Morrison Hecker and I have many, many great memories of Bonnie. Back then, there was about seven or eight operators and we were in a room to ourselves and we all became fast friends, we had a LOT of fun times. Bonnie was a wonderful person, she was always so kind and friendly to everyone and she was smart as a whip - whenever I needed help, she'd have the answer. I always enjoyed Bonnie's stories - she told me she and Garold loved hot air balloon festivals and she often spoke about her family and expressed how proud she was of him, her kids and grandkids. I'm sorry I didn't do better to keep in touch with Bonnie, but I often think of her and I am so sorry for your loss. I will keep your family in my prayers and thoughts.

I'm so very sorry. Bonnie was so special to me, as my second mom (babysitter) I got to spend so much time with her when I was young. I didn't know to appreciate that time back then, but as I aged, I really appreciated the whole family for being there for me. I know Bonnie is with all of her loved ones no longer with us and her Lord and Savior. Love, hugs, prayers and my thought always.❤
