  • butterfly"So sorry for your loss. Bonnie and I lived next door to each other as kids and became friends, we lost contact and then regained contact thru Facebook. We were ab;e to meet in Sterling a few times. We both enjoyed shopping @ resale shops.
    We found that we had much in common and enjoyed a friendship even though we didn't see each other too often.
    I know how much she loved you all and you her. Please try to remember the good times, I know that I will. I have no doubt that she is with the Lord and free of pain.
    Love,
    Shirley"
