    My heart breaks for your family. Doug was my Bonnie connection. She won my love and respect many years ago. Bonnie had weathered some hard times, but still always stayed positive and caring. When we talked she was always so proud of her children and humbly bragged on them with great love. As I walked through some rough times she was always calling to check on me and send her love. I will miss her kind heart and encouraging words. I know her absence in your lives will be hard. I will be lifting you all in prayer and asking God to give you peace as you share all of your favorite memories of her.

    • Angela R Woodall says:

      So good to finally meet you albeit under the circumstances. Thank you for your kind works also. Mother talked about you all the time. I pray for your comfort and strength also. It’s not easy being a widow even though you don’t have a choice. Wishing you much health and happiness for the years to come.

    Prayers for my Tennessee Family on this sad day. Some things I remember most about Bonnie: She gave me a red cardigan for Christmas, the first year I dated Jason. It is still one of my favorite sweaters. When she was working at Kroger, Bonnie would order Chai Charger Tea for Jason and I by the case. Bonnie loved animals and she would call our cat her Grandson. I’m glad she’s at peace and no longer in pain. She will be missed by those of us still here. Love to you all.

    • Angela R Woodall says:

      Thanks Sis. Yes she did love animals. You two have that in common for sure. She was proud of your work and would often tell, even strangers, where you were employed. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for ALL that you did during her illness. You are such a considerate person. I am grateful we got to spend those last moments together via the camera. Love you!!!

  7. Aunt Margaret, Kelly and Darren says:

    To Angie, Jason, Brian, Janet and Lisa, We send you our love and hope that God will be there for all of you as you go through this difficult time. Our Love to all of you.

    • Angela R Woodall says:

      Thank you and God has blessed us by letting Mother go quickly and not suffer. Love to ya’ll as well.
