Bonnie and I were best friends through our grade school years. My family moved away, but she always remained in my heart and was my best friend always. When I read the paper, that she had passed, it brought tears to my broken heart. My best to all of her family during this time. You are all in my prayers.

Rich and family,
We were so sorry to hear about Bonnie. My mind goes back to the fun times we had together. Florida, the Fleet and all of us singing Karioke, Christmas Eve, New years eve parties at different places around waterloo, super bowl parties at Willies or just hanging out for drinks at willies. Meeting you guys and mom and dad at goodtimes in Missouri. I miss and cherish those times and hated to see it all come to an end. So hard to lose someone so important in our lives and I know from losing my dad is something you will never get over, but my thoughts and prayers are with you all along with so many others praying for you . Take care of yourself Rich, we were just listening to one of your cd's from the fleet about a month ago at moms new house. We cried remembering dad and how much he loved that place, but we also laughed and danced to your voice on the CD player. Such a good singer and I know a lot of those love songs you were singing to Bonnie. Love the Simons

So sorry for your loss. She was so pretty and kind. Wish I could remeber that song dad would sing to her from when they were younger and he lived on Renois Lane in Cahokia. She loved her family so much and was very proud of them all. Love and prayers for you all.
