    There are many memories with this beautiful lady, as I call my (sweetgirl) she was truly a blessing to my life and brightened my day every single day seeing her face and that smile. She was a grandma I never had and I truly thank god everyday for putting her in my life, I would’ve done any and everything for her. Breaks me heart I won’t be able to attend her funeral since I will unfortunately be out of state, but I hope bonnie realized how much I loved her. I will truly miss her every single day, and my heart hurts without her but I know she’s in a happier place now, and that’s all she ever deserved was happiness. I love you forever bonnie Louise <3
