I still can’t get over the fact that you have left this world, although i know you are now resting in the arms of the angels & i know your in a better place, i will forever miss you. Will never forget all the fun times we had in our younger years, and Mr. Quinn telling us he was quitting teaching after our class, which he did, Lord knows we drove him crazy & you used to make me laugh like nobody else could. Please, hug your mom for me, i always loved her & your family.. Until we meet again, i will always carrry you close to my heart, and you will never be forgotten. Much love . Nancy- McDermott- Kennedy.♥️♥️♥️

RIH Bonita ❤️ I am hurting however my heart is filed with joy.. joy because finally daddy & her will be together again. My memories of Bonita are so clear.. Her laugh, her caring heart, her calling Poohs & Tanks name throughout the house. Bonita always treated me like a daughter ❤️, she saved my butt a few times with daddy. Always giving advise to make you want to do better . I know she’s in a better place and will always be looking & smiling down on us. Bonita is the reason I joined the Army and I will never forget her encouraging words that day. You are gone from this earth, however you WILL NEVER be forgotten ❤️ Love Stephanie
