It was so nice getting to know Bonnie at Madonna. She was a good friend to my mother and she will be missed. We always had fun chatting at dinner and playing Scrabble. I enjoyed hearing her talk about her life, career, children and grand children. God bless.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Bonnie every week over the last several months when I visited my mom at Madonna.  I really enjoyed knowing her and will miss our visits.  Blessings to Bonnie and all her family.
