  1. My deepest sympathy to Bonny’s family. I worked with her 25 yrs ago, and she was always such a blessing. I learned so much from her~her faith was contagious, and she lived it out in not only words, but in actions, as well. She was so kind, always had a positive outlook and sweet laughter, and a radiant smile that could brighten anyone’s day. I am so fortunate to have known her~and think of her often. What an impact she had upon my life, and numerous others. May you all sense His presence, peace, and love during this very difficult time.

  2. My sincere sympathies to Bonnie’s family. I had the pleasure of working with her at Red Creek High School. She was always a very caring person. She will be missed.

  3. I don’t have the words to express the sorrow on my dear cousins passing.I will always remember all the good times we had as kids and her contagious laugh. I am so thankful I got to visit her last Saurday and see her one last time. My heart goes out to Francie, Tom and her boys. All that knew her were very blessed.

  4. My deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Bonny. She was a kind spirit and touched the lives of many children at Red Creek Central.
