May God bring peace and comfort to all of Bonnie’s family during this difficult time. Time has put some distance between our families but you guys still feel like family to us just the same. It seems like Bonnie’s children were still little only a short while ago.

Bonnie was a great neighbor and friend.

When our lights went out during an ice storm,

She walked over to my house in the freezing cold. She took my,

Half baked chicken, out of my electric oven, and took it to her house

And finished cooking it on her gas stove. She wanted to make sure we would have something to eat. She loved all animals. She took in as many as she could. My dogs were always at her door looking for a treat.

When I was about to deliver my daughter, I was so worried. Bonnie called me to give me pointers, on how; I could make my labor less painful. Bonnie was also a great, spur of the moment, baby sitter.

We had a lot of laughs and we cried a few tears. Thank you Bonnie for being a part of my life.

To the Roberson family:

I am sorry for your loss of one of the sweetest and nicest person that ever walked on God’s green earth. When in high school Bonnie was nice and always treated all she knew with kindness. I saw her a few years ago when visiting Ahoskie and it was nice to talk to her again. My prayers are with you. May God be with you.

Bonnie’s classmate and friend.

To Bonnie’s family, I have some great memories of Bonnie. When we were young girls, my aunt lived next door to Bonnie, and every time we went to visit, straight to Bonnie’s I went. We had so much fun and so many laughs. Will think of her every time I hear Cherokee nation by Paul Revere and the Raiders. She loved that record and played it over and over. We went our separate ways as we got older, but ran in to each other later in life. She actually babysat my 2 youngest daughters for a while when they were very small. I never ran in to her that she was not kind and asked how everyone was. Rest in peace Bonnie, be at peace.
