  2. This is Diane, Bonnie’s sister
    Throughout my life that’s how I’ve always been known to Bonnie’s friends. I have known you for practically my entire life. Throughout all of that time the feelings I had when your name was mentioned was always one of warmth and sweetness and kindness
    I’ve never seen or heard you utter a hurtful word toanyone.
    You were exactly what you appeared to be.
    I remember being in your moms house and there was such an overwhelming aroma of goodness. The aroma was not just of the food that your mom was cooking but she made the house feel so welcoming and safe
    I see your face in the beautiful spring flowers. Rest in peace.

  3. Thanks for being my friend. I cherish our childhood memories. Thanks for being the one and only you and for being a blessing to so many people especially me.
    Rest In Peace
    Lorie (Baxis). 💔💔💔💔💔💔

I’LL LOVE YOU FOREVER Dearest Elaine my beautiful wife….. As I look and wonder why does the candle cri . Watching as each tear slowly run down its side. Slowly growing small as your life goes on. Each tear is a part of life slowly going by. As I watch the candles flame one year has just gone by. That candle was once tall and strong when life has just begun. The flame was bright, glowing with life the day you were born. As I watch the candle cry. Each tear runs down its side I have all the memories of all the times When your candle flame went out I wept for you Thinking of all the birthdays and all my memories of you. Of all the things we did when your candle was so tall Now I watch the candle cry ,your flame waves its last goodbye. All I have to remember you is my memories left inside. remembering my own candle flame will wave its own good by. Then I will be with you again with a tearful hello, not a tearful good by. I Love you Elaine

  26. Dearest Elaine,
    This did not turn out the way it was supposed to. I can’t believe I won’t be able to get together with you anymore. We’ve been friends since we were four years old, when we could cross the street. Through all the backyard fun on the swings, riding our bikes, hanging out on your fence, trips to the city including all the Broadway shows and autographs we waited for, and New Year’s Eve get togethers that continued till COVID took hold, our friendship with each other and the rest of the BELL Club was strong and everlasting. Your mother, Eleanora, was one of my mother’s dearest friends. Everyone loved you and your family.
    I will try to look past the sadness that now grips hold of me to remember the good times. I will carry you in my heart forever.
    Love, Bonnie and of course David, Matt and Adam
