Bonnie Bates was a lovely, enthusiastic lady who was one of the pillars of strength of the First Baptist Church. She seemed so lively, and always interested in the welfare of others, that it is hard to realize that Bonnie is no more. May God bless her and welcome her in his heavenly kingdom .
Thanks you, God, for the life of Bonnie Bates.

Dear Larry and family,
Your mom (and all of you) treated me with such gentle kindness, unlike what I had known before or since. She is beautiful in so many ways....for one, she was a seamstress of angels. I regret that I failed to contact her on my last, rare visit to AA. Deepest sympathy, Jane Burckhalter Dickinson

Mrs. Bates was a warm, kind-hearted person who will be greatly missed. My thoughts are with Mr. Bates, Larry, Kathy, Dave, Doug and their families.

Dick, Larry, Dave, Doug and Families,
Bonnie's passing was heaven's gain and our loss. Your wife, mother, grandmother and so many other roles she filled in so many lives meant so much to me.
