|EULOGIES & CONDOLENCES|
|I am happy to have known Bonnie. She was always such a
bright spot on my schedule of dental patients. Somehow we
would manage an hour long conversation during our treatment
time. I remember her optimism and her loving outlook and her
strong faith. She seemed to love her children so much and
she spoke of their spouses very lovingly. Her eyes would light
up when we talked of her flowers. I send Love and support for
Bonnie’s family and know that she is a bright Light continuing
to shine in a new place.|
