Dougie & family:
So sorry to hear of Bonnie’s passing but she is at rest now with no pain. I’ll always remember the great times we had bowling and lots of good laughs. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during these difficult days. God bless!
Barry & Tonia Roy
We pray the love of God enfolds you during your journey through grief.
We send you thoughts of comfort.
As a teenage boy I remember helping with the haying, where Aunt Bonnie usually drove the truck with the windows up because of her allergies, even though it was so hot outside. No matter what the task, Aunt Bonnie was always there to offer a helping hand and an encouraging word. We, as will everyone else who knew her, will certainly miss her dearly.
Uncle Dougie, Darlene, Amanda and Dennis, as well as your immediate families, please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss…our thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Please accept these words as comfort as we send our love and remembrance.
“I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love”.
Sorry to hear about Bonny our condolence’s go to you and your family Donald and Iudy

To Bonnie’s Family, So sorry to hear you lost a very dear relative. Keep all those fond memories foremost in your mind. Also, here is a Scripture that has helped many mourners, it is John 5:28,29. It assures us that our loved one will receive a resurrection. Then she will have no suffering just as she has none now while she is asleep in death. She will be able to be in a hay field without suffering from an allergy. We send our love and condolences to you all at this sad time. Del & Mary.

In your time of grief and sorrow I am sending along the thoughts and prayers of my family (Alice Daniels (A Baker) was my grandmother) here in Vermont.
I know that most often others words cannot alleviate the pain but in my experience all are heartfelt and meant to comfort one and all in times of great suffering.
Rest In Peace Bonita

It is so very sad to see Bonnie’s obituary here, although when I visited her she was so ill. Such a gracious woman- gone far too soon. She leaves behind many good memories for you all- her dedication to her family and community will not soon be forgotten. Take care.
I met Bonnie as a customer at the store in which I work . Bonnie and I had a good conversation the last time I spoke to her . May her family find comfort in all your precious memories . Time will ease your pain but won’t ever erase your memories . God bless you all .
With sincerest condolences to the family of Bonita Croft on the passing of your loved one. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
