She is such a lovely lady - never looked anywhere near her age. I am sure many angels were gleefully awaiting her arrival. She was an extraordinary person.

I am so sorry to hear Bonnie has left this world. I am very sorry for you and the kids Pletcher, but I am so happy for her because she has run her race and finished her course. She is where there is no more sorrow or pain and I know we'll meet again. Just know you are in my prayers because it is hard for us left here to let go. She is now where we who believe and accept Jesus as our Savior all long to be; safe forever more in the arms of Jesus.

Pletcher, Noel, and family: We are so sorry to learn of your loss. You all are in our prayers as you say your temporary goodbyes to someone so precious to you. May God grant you strength, comfort, and peace knowing she's home with her Savior.

Bonnie was truly a wonderful soul. Anytime I ever visited their home, she invited me in as though I was one of hers. May she be rejoicing on the streets of gold with Jesus, pain free at last. Heaven has gained another one, what a joyous place it will be!

When I was a kid and would visit her house she would always make me feel at home. She was such a warm and caring person. She didnt talk a lot, but you could always see the feelings in her eyes. Prayers and Hugs for the family. Love you all
