Bonnie I’m so sorry on the passing of your mother. It was a great pleasure to know and work for her. She treated me great and I’m glad to have known her. She thought the world of you and your two daughters. If I can be of any assistance to you please don’t hesitate to contact me. Again I’m very sorry and I will keep her in my prayers.
I’ve known your mother most of my adult life and she was good to me. I am so sorry for your loss, if there anything I can help with let me know. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Bonnie I am sending hugs your way. The stress and worry are over. Edna is being cared for by the Lord and smiling down on you and the girls. She knows how much you did for her.
I have so many happy memories of my teen years working at Greulich’s Market. I still have dreams about those days! Good dreams
Now when we meet out we can talk about happier times.
God Bless, Jeanette
Hi Bonnie, I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your mother. I met your mother August, 1976 when she brought a 12 step program to the area. I am so indebted to her for this because it changed my life, perhaps saved it. I never met you but your mother spoke of you with pride and love, along with your two daughters. She was a wonderful woman and it was a privilege to have known her. I will keep her in my prayers that she is at peace.
Marie MacPherson, a friend.
