The work that she did was very much a reflection of the kind of person that she was. Whether it was “Catering or Quilting” she had to gather ingredients and pieces with care to be put together with love. The plan she had may have changed through-out the process but the final product provided comfort and warmth to friends, family, and sometimes complete strangers. Her easy-going manner and kind eyes made friends wherever she went, we quite often found her talking with people, only to hear later that she had no idea who they were or where they were from. Everyone that met her was better off for knowing her, whether it was her kind words, gestures, or her humor she could make your day that much better. Bonnie we will always love you and miss you.
