The good Lord took an angel home early. Bonnie was sweet, beautiful, and graceful. Her house across the street west of the cafeteria was like an extension of Sr High. Her mom, sisters, and little brother Frank were always welcoming. She was a true friend since 7th grade. I hope to see you on the other side on day, Bonnie.

Bonnie and I met in 1st grade, going all through school together, spending pretty close to every day together. She went to Flathead Lake every summer with me,lots of fun! She was the best friend anyone could have.I miss her so much; I truly wanted to grow old with her,she left all too soon. She was as beautiful inside her heart as she was to look at her outward beauty. I learned from her what a true friend ment. At her funeral, Carolyn Flynn and Chalotte Finder Fannon and I went into the house through the front door; as we went in, I said, "You guys, I don't think I have ever come through the front door." I was meaning, we always went in by the side door, but her aunt was sitting there and said, "I think you and Bonnie went in and out of the windows more than the doors!" Heeheehee,that is the truth! So many times I remember, meeting all our close friends when we got to Jr. skating at Pioneer Park, swinging around the flag pole at Sr. High, sunbathing on the Rims and her brother--in-law teaching us how to water ski at Lake Elmo and being in the water ski clubs. I talked to her two days before she past, as she was coming up to Evergreen to have dinner with us, so I am glad I got to have that last conversation with her. I look forward to meeting her in heaven some day along with my dear friend, Charlie Hall and Cheryl Frick. I know this has gotten sooo long, but I do want to write about Cheryl and Charlie.
Charlie and I went all through Sunday School together and had a life-time friendship as well. I remember, as many of you do too playing Crack the Whip with his dad, Mr. Hall (Tony) at Pioneer Park in the winter. What fun! Charlie's wife and I talk and have met in Red Lodge for lunch after Charlie past. I will always feel his bear hugs and his dimples when he smiled.A great friend.
Cheyl and I met in High School. She too was a beauty with a loving and tender heart. I was going with Tom Dobbins and he would come home from Bozemen,bring his friend, Dennis Erickson with him. I would set Dennis up with a date, usually Cheryl or Carol Bell, Moslet. Had I known Dennis' future becoming the Seattle Seahawks coach, I should have set myself up with him! Heeheehee! Tom has passed as well, a special person in my life. I have been blessed to have such wonderful friends all my life. I treasure each in a very special way. I look forward to our reunion to see you all who will be there. Partay! Partat!!!!!!

Everyone loved Bonnie, I have a lot of fond memories of hanging out with her and you as well Linda.  In the late 70s Bonnie was back in Billings and remember having lunches with her and talking about old friends. It was one of the saddest days of my life when I heard she was no longer with us. She brought a lot of light to a lot of people.  RIP
