Not sure what to say?

Dear Bonnie - Our mothers were such dear friends over the years, the miles and the family connections. My mother always remembered your beautiful mother playing the harp at my parents' wedding, and continuing that friendship all the way to your parents visiting us at Cape Cod some years ago. I will miss her so much - and I know this is a very hard loss for you. Please know that I am sending prayers for love and courage and comfort. Pryor Hale (Charlottesville VA)

Dearest Bonnie, I am very sorry to see that your Mom passed away. Our love goes out to you, Dear Sweet, friend. Dolly

My sweet Liz. Always dressed to the nines, you had a pair of shoes and matching broach for every outfit! You were such a ray of light. Im honored I had the privilege to meet and take care of you. I will always remember our talks and your stories. I miss you but I know you are so happy to be reunited with your “sugar bear”. Love you so much

You were loved you are loved and you will never be forgotten ♥

Dear Bonnie,
It's been a long time ... but the good memories of your Mom come flooding back. Jerry first met her in the Shipyard and then we were lucky enough to make her party list. We enjoyed many a good time in your basement when you were a teenager. She and your Dad were among our all-time favorites. Life moves on, but we never forget those who were important to us. I really hope you are well and I send dearest wishes along with deepest sympathy.

I will miss her mischievious smile and sparkling eyes. She lived a full, God centered life, and I was blessed to know her. May your...

Dear Bonnie & families,
You are in my prayers and thoughts. I have many great memories living in the Riverside area. Two homes down with Our parents being good friends. Keep her memoires close. Many of us are on Facebook so you can look us up there. May God give you peace in your time of loss. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4 God bless each of you.
