This precious lady will be missed by everyone who knew her. Her big heart touched so many lives. That big heart broke when Bonnie lost her lifelong best friend and her twin soul, Connie. Other painful losses came shortly after Connie passed and Bonnie was broken a little more with each one. Now, she's free and happy, and her heart is healed. Her prayers have been answered. She's holding onto all those people she deeply missed. My prayers are that her family will find comfort in the memories and all the love she shared. She left a lot of those thing behind. Bonnie will be missed...but she's in a better place, exactly where she wanted to be.
