Reid family, I am do sorry for the loss of your loved one. Mrs. Bonnie was a sweet and special lady. Much love and many prayers for you all.
Prayers for your family. Your Mother and Dad were both very special people.
Marvin I am so sorry for the loss of your mother.
I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.
As an extraordinary lady in many ways, Mrs. Bonnie left a legacy that will be dearly cherished by all those who knew her. As a talented musician who shared her love of music, she ignited interest and cultivated musical growth in her school students, she contributed to inspirational worship services in church services, and in her last chapter of life, she blessed nursing home residents with soothing music, gospel music, and “good-times” music that penetrated the shell of their isolation. It was through her music that she spoke volumes, touching the hearts of others as they felt what she felt.
Mrs. Bonnie will be missed, but she will be remembered. Our prayers continue for her family.
