    Praying for you today, Marcia and your family too. Bonnie was a wonderful person. She loved people. What I remember about her was her joy in taking in the MAGABOOK kids every summer we had it in the Lansing area. The kids loved staying at their home too. Today those kids that stayed there are good kids and have commented to me how staying in your folks home was blessing. So sorry she is gone. Won’t heaven be wonderful when we can meet with our Moms again.

    My deepest sympathy, Marcia. Your Mother was a beautiful person in every way. She lived a life of service and now rests, safe and secure. Reunion will be most joyous!
