Thank you for signing Bonnie Lee Collins Brown's Guestbook
It is with deep sorrow to learn of Bonnie's passing. I knew from activities at the lodge w/her husband, Billy. She was a very kind and sweet person. She had a tremendous smile and a beautiful glow in her eyes. I always enjoyed our conversations. She was a fine person who brings joy and fond memories to the world around her. She will be remembered and missed.

So sorry to hear about Bonnie. She was always a friend to talk with and I will always remember her for her concern about my wife Montez and me. God will see that Bonnie has no more pain or suffering for eternity. Praying for you Worshipful Brother Billy.
