Praying for the family of Celestine Edwards. You all have my deepest sympathy in the death but heavens gain of Bonnie. Bonnie was my supervisor at Department of Welfare years ago and her sister worked with us. She was always a pleasant person and gave me all the tools needed when I became. A supervisor years later. Praying God grants her husband children and family the peace need in the days ahead.

To the family of my Bonnie,

My deepest condolences and prayers. The pain is deep but our God can heal. I'm so grateful for having been a part of Bonnie's life and her "little sister". She was loving, sweet and funny. We're all better for having known her and experienced her love.

I miss you already. My love for you will never cease.

May the Lord grant the loved ones peace, strength and comfort. May our fond memories of Bonnie bring us joy.

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
