Dr. Bonner has been my doctor for over 20 years. I started seeing him when I was 18 and pregnant. He got me through my delivery. He was not just a dr he was my friend. He remembered everything about me everytime I came to see him. He would rag me about wearing my Auburn shirts. He saw me through 2 open heart surgeries and I always felt safe knowing I had dr.bonner on my side watching over everything. U just dont find doctors like him anymore! This is just so devastating. My prayers go out to the family! He was stuck a great man and I feel honored to have known him. Heaven just gained an awesome angel!
