They all were very close! Bonnie thank you for being such a great friend to me! I love you and will miss you greatly! You will always have a special place in my heart.. May you soar high with the Angels in Heaven and may you Rest in Peace…. Until we meet again……

  • My prayers are with you . So sorry to hear this . I worked with Bonnie at Cracker Barrel and nursing home in Centerburg . I am so sorry for your loss .

  • I met bonnie at my first stna job Bennington Glen and she was so amazing to be around and to work with! She pushed me to get my nursing license along with Holly, Abby, Tasha, and Bambi! She kept in touch with me after I left that job to check in occasionally and I always liked that she put a fire under my rear to keep my head on straight so I could be a nurse to have a career. She was a great person with a beautiful soul and she will most definitely be sorely missed but never forgotten.
