Mancel, my condolences to you and your family.
I never had the pleasure of meeting Bonnie, but I know you had a wonderful life together.
Mancel, our thoughts go out to you in this time of loss. I did not read about Bonnie’s passing until today, as my obituary reading is just something I do intermittently. Our condolences to the rest of the family as well.
Bonnie was a wonderful, cheerful, generous lady who will be greatly missed.
