    I enjoyed my many visits to Bonnie’s home with Valerie and Murphy over the past 7 years, and our outings to the Dairy Queen and Stellas. She was always so gracious and interesting to talk with. She was a wonderful person, very typical of the greatest generation. I’m glad I got a chance to know her. Rick .

    Tory and I are deeply saddened by Bonnie’s passing. Bonnie shared her jou with us and we are far better having known her and Ben. Our prayers are with you all.

    I am tardy in sanding my sympathy to Bonnie’s family. We were traveling at the time of her death. I did not know her well, but we had some correspondence several years ago, and we shared a “Logan” connection. My aunt Edna Mae Maaske was married to Bonnie’s uncle Verne Jackson, and I knew Opal Lodwig. While traveling we visited my cousin Terry Jackson in California. My sincere condolences for a life well lived a strong spirt. May the Lord of us all bless and keep you in his constant care and keep Bonnie’s memory alive with your love.
