My sincere condolences on the loss of your wonderful Mother, Grand Mother and Great Grandmother. It has been my pleasure to care for Bonnie and I will sorely miss her. I was blessed to have some very endearing conversations with her and I know just how much she loved her family. I looked forward to her sass and wit each day and she always brought a smile to my face. Your loss will be shared by all of those who have known her, including myself.
Thank you for entrusting us with her care.

Our sympathy and condolences to all of you. Heaven gained another angel, to be sure. And she is with her parents and my mom (Irma Thralow Flitter). God be praised we will all be united some day. May God bless you with comfort and strength in the meantime.
