    My deepest sympathy and condolences to the family. I remember many years ago gowing up with all of you in the area of Crisfield called Hoptown. Those were the days. In later years, Bonnie and I renewed our friendship and Bonnie was indeed a friend. She had a heart of gold. Her passing has left a deep void for me and my son, who Bonnie and Margaret treated as their own. Please know, that those we love are never no more than a thought apart; for as long as there is memory they will live in our hearts. We hope that your wonderful memories of Bonnie will help dimish the grief and loss you may be exepericing at this time as you trust and lean on God for comfort and peace in your time of sorrow.

    I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. May you and your family find peace and comfort in the fond memories you have of Miss Bonnie. I will be praying for you and your family. May God Bless you all.

    My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family as you mourn the loss of Mom Bonnie. I will always remember our times we shared with her on 4th street and Hoptown. She was a very dear and special woman. I can hear her now calling you “Trrriiiiinnnna”, (LOL) and we were just in the back yard couldn’t go much further. May God give you and the family comforting arms in your time of sorrow and afterwards.
