    Bonnie was a Stonehaven family member and my neighbor (just across the hall and two apartments down). She was active participant to many of the events happening all around us. Tuesday coloring, Bonnie would come done to the lobby and visit us as she sat by the fireplace. We were in drawing class together each Monday afternoon. Bonnie enjoyed taking in the movies in the theatre and enjoyed visiting outside on the patio. Every once in a while when I opened my door, there would be a loaf of banana bread waiting for me. Thanks to Bonnie! One Christmas, I answered my door and there Bonnie had made a “Happy Birthday Jesus” birthday cake. She and another neighbor Gloria were going door to door sharing birthday cake. I will miss my neighbor and friend Bonnie. My sympathy, thoughts and prayers to you all during this tender time.
