Add My Condolences

Bonnie we were best friends for a short while, and I miss you terribly. When I became your neighbor and we met, and became instant friends. The night the ambulance came and picked you up was a very bad night for me. Ikept trying to find out where you were. It took me about 6 months. When I found you ,you were in Sanatoga Ctr. I came the next day to visit you and knew when I saw you wouldn't be coming back home. I miss you so much. Rest in peace sweet lady.
