Bonnie has always been a kind and generous soul. I know she’s had struggles, but she always said how thankful and blessed she was to have each moment God gave her on this earth. I will miss her smile and encouragement that she always gave whenever I saw her. I know she’s with the Lord with no more pain. Sending prayers to all her loved ones she left behind. I know she would say just live and be thankful for each moment.
