Bonnie was so friendly and supportive of me. She really had a great sense of humor. May God bring you all comfort and peace.
My condolences to the family. Bonnie was a good person. Fun to be around and always thoughtful. Was able to spend time with her and Bill on several occasions. Bonnie was cousin to Bill Markus. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, and may Bonnie find peace and Love in her new home and back with Bill.
