Friend to all, she spoke the truth
and pulled no punches...
R.I.P. May, 2003
This week May 12, 2003, we lost our friend, Bonnie.
Her friends knew her as "Ronnie's Bonnie"; the
two of them were inseperable when their work hours allowed.
If we'd stop at the Forge or later the Corner Store
or maybe see her in town after work when Ronnie worked nights, we'd have
her to ourselves for a bit.
Always willing to help or to listen or to join
in a friendly conversation. Loved by her friends and family alike. ...And
by the puppies who she treated like children.
We worried when we heard that she was ill, and
hoped for the best and to see her home soon.
Instead, we share this news with sadness.
Ronnie's loss is the greatest, she was his best
friend, his partner, his wife. They married and made their home and their
And our loss is great as well. Bonnie was well-liked
and respected in our little community.
She will be missed.
We'll no longer hear her strong and cheerful laugh
- except in our memories.
We'll miss her warm hugs, her quiet and thoughtful
manner, her patience with our imperfections.
We'll go on without her, our lives lessened by
her loss - until we meet our own life's end.
Until we join her, we'll carry her memory in our
We'll miss our friend Bonnie and wish strength
for her man Ronnie.
