  1. I’m Dave Kadwell a cousin on the Riley side of Art Riley’s family. I have spoken to Bonnie and emailed her several times. Very nice lady. I also knew Lawerence. Those were the days when we were all at the cottage in Holland. So sorry for the loss.

  2. She was a lovely lady. I remember as a child we had gathered at my family cottage. We sat down in the evening to watch TV. Black and white at the time. Aunt Bonnie was crocheting a sweater. She watched TV and talked with others like anyone else in the room. She didn’t even have to look at her needlework or count the stitches. I was amazed. I will miss her emails and her stories about her activities. May she rest in peace.

  3. Dear Carol, Laurel and families, My deepest condolences. Your Mom and I became good friends through Com-Ed and enjoyed staying in touch. Prayers of peace and comfort. Love, Charlene
