Bonnie was a sweet soul; she had an infectious smile and she was a great swimmer. I remember being in sychronized swimming with her. She had an amazing talent. It was fun doing the shows with her and the other gals. We didn't have much contact after high school because we all had such busy lives. We had a great class and there were many special thoughts about those wonderful carefree years. I am sure Bonnie was a wonderful teacher and all her students loved her.

I also share a passion of travel. What a blessing that Bonnie was able to see so much of the world before God took her to her final travel destination.

I also remember the fun we had at the 30 year reunion and having breakfast the next day simply remembering and laughing about those special times. I was hoping Bonnie, had been at the 50th for more fun, laughter and remembering.

Rest in Peace sweet, Bonnie, we will miss you.

My heart and prayers go out to Bonnie's family especially her children and grandchildren. Just know that she is now with God, her maker; happy and at peace.

Love and Blessings to you all,
