    Dearest Bill – So very sorry to hear of Bonnie’s passing. Although my memories of you guys only go back to the mid-80s, I know that you and Bonnie were great pals of my parents, David & Nancy, and your names still come up in the old ‘remember when’ stories! Just recently, Mom reminded me that she stood up at your and Bonnie’s wedding all those years ago. I remember pontoon rides at Pine Lake, and drinking and dancing at the Prairie Schooner… Bonnie was a beautiful person inside and out and we were all better for having known her. May your wonderful memories comfort you Bill. Please know that we are keeping your in our thoughts and prayers. RIP Bonnie. God Bless you Bill, & family
