Memories Timeline


  1. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. Psalms 23:4

  2. In times of darkness, love sees…
    In times of silence, love hears…
    In times of doubt, love hopes…
    In times of sorrow, love heals…
    And in all times, love remembers.
    May time soften the pain
    Until all that remains
    Is the warmth of the memories
    And the love.

  3. Such a sweet and precious lady. I will always fondly remember her sweet spirit and the wonderful care she gave her daughter Sharon. Her family is in our prayers. 

  4. Aunt Bonnie,
    You were a kind and loving Aunt to all of us. You will always be in my heart and I’ll miss you very much. Rest in heavenly peace sweet lady.
