    I love Bro JV and sister Bonita so much. I’m so sorry to hear of his passing, but I’m so grateful he’s reunited with Sis Bonita and he’s now in the presence of our Savior! One of my favorite memories: He never went fishing with me, but he’d always clean the fish. Why? So he could tell everyone about the fish “we” caught. I miss him, but I’ll see him again. Ray, Bonnie, and the family, we’re praying God’s peace for you.
