"I am so very sorry to learn of Bonnie's passing. Bonnie and I were close friends both growing up and attending Lincoln School when The Moomey family moved to the East hill location on Park Drive. We lost touch after my move to Florida but reunited at our MHS Class reunions and on special occasions Bonnie would send me a note with a poem she had written. She will always be in my greatest memories and I will miss just knowing she would be there if I needed her. May she Rest In Peace as she is reunited with Wayne and her parents and sisters in Heaven. "
