  1. Dear children of Bonnie, I worked with your mom many years ago at Decatur Township, in 1981 and 1982. I just read this evening about your mother's passing. Bonnie was such a kind and gentle soul. I last saw her about a year ago and we had a great conversation about days long gone. Jay and Cindy I remember meeting you many years ago. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. Bonnie was a very kind and giving person and she will be missed by many. Sandy McReynolds

  3. Cindy, my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I know that this is a difficult time but keep all the wonderful memories of your Mom with you always. I lost my mom when I was 7 and would love to have memories to hold onto. Time will heal but I know the loss will remain. Take care my friend.
