I was very saddened to hear of Bonnie's passing. As a longtime parishioner of Our Lady of Fatima, we enjoyed our brief exchanges. Then I joined the Coquitlam Needle Guild and was warmly welcomed by Bonnie and we have several long chats. Bonnie was very proud of her family and all the wonderful things they accomplished.
