    It was September 23rd, 2007. We had been living in our home for just over a year and I was running out the front door with full hair and makeup done and my wedding veil in place, it’s length gathered in my arms. My wedding party had arrived late to pick up the things they were responsible for and I was rushing to get to the venue. That was the moment my neighbor decided she needed to come introduce herself and have a conversation with me… “Oh dear Lord” I thought… “Why right this moment? Don’t you see I have somewhere to be?!?” but I remained calm and friendly and we quickly parted ways but not before the distraction left me catching the veil in the car door, unable to fully turn my head and I backed into the vehicle of one of the late groomsman that thought it was a good idea to park right behind the frantic rushing bride. Aye aye aye. A total disaster. Our introduction is one of the more vivid memories I have of that day and is an integral storytelling moment when I recount one of the most special days of my life.

    Over the years, Mrs. Bonnie became so endearing and I would come to learn that was probably the shortest conversation we would ever have. You didn’t start a conversation with her without knowing it would be at least a half hour talking about this or that. In 2020, when I was pregnant and began working from home during COVID, I would take my breaks and go visit if she was home. I was always grateful for the friendship that grew. I’d often peak out my front window and see her mowing the grass or she would make my doorbell camera ding as there was constant coming and going to the store for this and that. She was unsuspectingly hilarious and constantly made me giggle even if from afar. My favorite moments was when she bantered with Mr. Dennis, it reminded me so much of my own marriage. It was so clear how much they enjoyed simply living life together, with all its good times and its bad. 

Mrs. Bonnie was truly a special person and clearly, God broke the mold after making her. It was such a strange coincidence that it was September 23rd, exactly 16 years later, when I learned that He had unexpectedly called her home … “Oh dear Lord…” I thought… but clearly she had somewhere she needed to be.

    Here’s to you, Mrs. B. I know you watching Aaron grow and loved to watch him bounce around the yard. I was looking forward to the day when he would have been allowed to cross the road without parental guidance and be your friend. Rest assured that even though you’re no longer here, I’m going to make sure to teach him that it’s not okay to just go in your house and eat your popsicles. You will be so very missed.

    So sorry about Bonnie. I found a scripture I like to share at JW.org, Acts 24:15, “there is going to be a resurrection,” I wish your family the very best for the future.

    Even in your sadness, I hope you can hold on to the thought that a life so precious to so many and lived with so much love never really ends, but goes on forever in the hearts of those who remember.
    May you find strength in the love of family and the warm embrace of friends.
