Life Story Info
My heart goes out to you and your family during this difficult time. Bonnie was such a beautiful person and your children are a direct reflection of her. Bonnie taught me, it is not the length of time you know someone but the depth in which they touch your soul.
I am thankful that she is now free, having escaped the confinement of dementia. I treasure the countless hugs, beautiful smiles, thankful glances, and good laughs she shared with me, as we strolled, hand-in-hand, through the halls and courtyard,.
I am forever grateful to have met your beautiful family. Thank you for trusting me to care for Bonnie, she truly touched my soul. Warmly, Dana
