Bonnie: I did not have the chance to see you the last time you visited Arizona. I always thougth that I would see you again, I just did not know where and when..I know now, I can hardly wait. We shared some good times when we shared a home in Tempe Arizona. When ever I start telling a story about us I start by saying; "my best friend and I...", I hope you dont mind. You were one of the few persons that attended my wedding to Pepe in Agua Prieta Sonora Mexico on April 21, 1973; guess what?, we will celebrate our 40th wedding aniversary this year..I have so many things to talk to you about. I can still hear your laughter, the world is a sadder place with out you .....I am sure that heaven is a better place with you there. There is a very large hole in my heart made by your departure, it is going to take a lot of happiness to fill it. We love you very much; Terry and Pepe.

I just learned of Bonnie's passing. I worked with her at Bullock's in Las Vegas. She was the first non-family member to babysit our newborn daughter. We have kept in touch with yearly Christmas letters for over 25 years. My deepest sympathies for the loss of this wonderful woman. God bless you all. Melinda Bailey-Rather

I was notified of Bonnies passing by her niece or cousin who called my home in Las Vegas. I remember working at Bullock's Department Store when it first opened back in 1981 an Bonnie was the General Manager's Secretary. She was a wonderful person to know and she had this infectious smile and warming personality. While it's been years since we last spoke I can easiy remember her voice an laugh. Leslie Idaspe was also one of our friends. As I recall my memories of Bonnie I'm sure memories her family has of her will help get you through this difficult period. God Bless Bonnie.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Bonnie and I were distant cousins, but I enjoyed hanging with her when I lived in California. We would get together on ocassions for lunch or dinner. I remember one time when we were invited over to her place in Korea Town and had a dinner, and we laughed and told stories of the McCarty and Thompson days. Bonnie also came to my wedding back in 1988 in California, and it was nice to have some family from Beaver County on our special day. Bonnie will be missed, she was a fountain of joy, and I will always miss her big beautiful smile. My heart is hurting for our loss, she was a gem and a friend!

Bonzai, I feel so fortunate to have gotten to know you and love you. I wish it had not taken so long for us to finally meet face to face. I had heard all the wonderful stories about you from Leslie over the years and it was worth the wait. You were everything Leslie had told me and more. We never shook hands. We hugged, as friends do. You meant so much to Leslie and that meant the world to me. You have such a kind heart and you always made me laugh. I will miss you and will always remember you in my heart. Love Mike

My Dearest Bonzai, Thank you for being my friend. I will miss you more than you will ever know. We shared so many wonderful memories. You were the one who always made everything so special. You know things that no one else knows. I will always remember you falling asleep when Mike and I came over, eating tostadas, your wonderful Christmas noshes when we returned from Tucson, my 30th surprise birthday party....so many memories that I will cherish forever. I love you, I will miss you and you will always be in my heart. (I will watch Flashdance, in honor of you). Thank you my friend, Friends forever....Lester
