So sorry could not attend services. Bonnie was one fantastic lady and will be missed by all. She stayed with us couple of times when we lived in Syracuse to catch early morning flight and we would reminisce.

Jay and Shellie, so sorry I was sick and no one from our side of the family could make the service. Your mother was always one of my favorite people she always had a smile when I was around her. It is to bad I only realized she was in Orlando now as I work there at least once per year.

Love to both of you!

My dear, sweet Aunt Bonnie. I was so blessed to have had you in my life. You taught me so much, starting from a young age but never ending. I suspect I will still learn from your life and your legacy and hopefully share with my own children the things I learned from you. Things like making candy, but also the less tangible stuff, like empathy and compassion. And how to be a good person without even trying. They already know how to be stubborn! Hahahah. We love you, Aunt Bon. You will be sorely missed and never forgotten. Tell my father I said hello. I miss him endlessly but I know he’s in a better place now, as are you.
