Bonnie is a treasure and a gift. Such a powerful voice and example for Christ. She inspired so many, and was a special gift to me in my journey. She was not afraid to stand for what she believed in, and was a fierce warrior in life with the circumstances she faced. Bonnie has been a blessing in my life and taught me that if God leads you to it, He will lead you through it. I will miss her early morning calls, her spontaneous ideas, her laughter, our discussions about the Lord, and her trust in me during the projects we worked together on. I will miss having the visible example of her incredible willingness to be obedient no matter what the cost. It is inspiring how she maneuvered through her journey in life, and what a gift her family is to her. So thankful for all of the love and support she knew she could count on with Charlotte, Janet, Crystal and the rest of her family. God is glorified by Bonnie's precious life. So grateful to God for sweet Bonnie's life and all the love she shared and the joy she brought to so many.
You are home now, in the presence of the Lord, your Father.
James Timothy so sorry for yours and your familes loss.My thoughts and prayers are with you
James, so sorry to hear of your moms passing. She was defiantly one of a kind. May GOD, bring you peace, comfort, strength and understanding during this time. I LOVE MY BROTHER. MANY PRAYERS AND CONDOLENCES
Sending prayers to Bonnie's Family and she was awesome women and she will be missed.
My deepest sympathy goes out to Mrs Bonnie's friends and family. I have known Bonnie for 20 years such an inspiration to me. She would pray with me. I lost my daughter Chasidy almost 3 years ago and Bonnie would talk to me and pray with me. I know she is rejoicing in heaven. Love you Bonnie. Until we meet again
What a prayer warrior and servant of God. A true example of the hands and feet of Jesus. She was always so helpful and compassionate. She will be truly missed but I'm almost jealous that she's getting to talk to Jesus face to face. Her family has our sympathy and prayers.
MRS Bonnie was a very sweet woman. I called her one day and ask her if she could put my boy to work and she did and my son said nothing but very good stuff about her. She thought my son alot and now he is staying out of trouble so set my boy right. She will be missed by so many people. REST IN PEACE MRS BONNIE
Heavens not a bad place to be, but you will be missed. She had so many friends and loved ones but my heart goes out to you James Timothy and her sister n mine Janet Wilson! I love you both you have my prayers for peace n comfort in the days ahead ðŸ™ðŸ™ðŸ™
Bonnie will be sorely missed. Not only for her words of wisdom and for the vital work she accomplished in the community, but also for being a prayer warrior She worked tirelessly to accomplish God's mission for her life. Clark and I are praying for her family. May she rest in peace and love.
You will be Missed , you are so loved by a lot of people, you were a faithful servant of God and God needed a flower to finish his bouquet and he picked you love you Bonnie prayers for all the family especially James Crystal our prayers are with you sheâ€™s not suffering no more sheâ€™s with the heavenly angels singing her song love La Rue
My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Especially to my friend Cheryl Adams who looked up to you as a mother and best friend. Rest in peace.
Well done my good and faithful servant is exactly what she was told when she arrived in heaven. She loved everyone like Jesus. Gonna miss you till I meet you again.
Oh my I hadn't heard until just now. Bonnie was a dream maker and a faith builder. She gave the beaten and downtrodden dreams. Dreams for a better tomorrow and faith to build on. She didn't care if you were rich or poor, she cared to show you Jesus. Bonnie had a history, and that history gave her knowledge and insight that many people never understand. She was real. She loved people. She loved her family but utmost she loved the lord and all he had done for her. Bonnie will be seen by those of us who serve the Lord and live for Jesus. So it's not good bye, it's see you later my friend. Hug my little Ashton for me.
Sorry for you loss
Prayers for your family ðŸ™
So much love and kindness for all in one sweet soul. I met Bonnie probably 20 yrs ago. And I have never seen anybody do so much for so many. She would always give my daughter a toy when she was little, and last time she saw Emily she couldnâ€™t believe how grown she was.. â¤ï¸ Bonnie was 1 of a kind. And will be truly missed.. all of the people at Helping Hands feel like family. I love you all. Itâ€™s not goodbye- itâ€™s see you laterðŸ™ðŸ»â¤ï¸ðŸ™ðŸ»
Mrs. Bonnie was an angel here on earth, she did so much for everyone, she will be missed so much here, but God needed his angel back. I know where she is. And I know we will see her again love you always Mrs.Bonnie â¤ï¸
Bonnie lived her life in service to others. She brought hope to many and tireless gave of herself to the community. She loved her family at Helping Hands and never ceased to be a presence there. A light has certainly grown dim in Saline County. May the torch be carried on by those she left behind to continue serving the vulnerable populations and truly carry out her legacy of giving back. She was an example of Godâ€™s love in the work she did. Forever missed.
Will never fight Bonnie.. A wonderful friend to me and everybody.. Jesus was her mission in life and I believe she is enjoying the fruits of his blessings.. She is sorely missed...â¹

I pray that all that you have poured into us that we are as faithful as you to pour into others. Thank you for believing in me and loving me. Until we meet again my friend. I love you.
My Spiritual mother, you always taught me not to love you to death, but say "I love you to life"So even in your passing I will always love you to life, for you hold a special place in my heart, as you helped me along the way with my journey with the Holy Spirit as I know your at the throne room now resting at our Fathers feet and He finally got to tell you what you've always wanted to hear "WELL DONE MY FAITHFUL SERVANT" for you finally finished your race.My beautiful Spiritual mother I'll always remember and never forget who you were and always will be to my family. an amazing Sister, Mawmaw, and MY SPIRITUAL MOTHER
My thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family at this time for strength and love. Bonnie meant so very much to me, I have known her since she was 12 years old and I was 14. Her and her sister Janet are my best friends then and remain that throughout the years. I love them like sisters. She was a warm and giving person even when she was younger. She was always there for me helping me through some of the roughest times in my life, so it didn't surprise me when she took on Helping Hands, that was just the kind of person she was. I will miss you forever, until I see you again.
I am so sorry for your loss and will be praying for the family. Bonnie had a huge heart and beautiful soul. She will be missed. PamCash
U are finally where u belong. Fly Beautiful Angel
Bonnie saw something in me when no one else did. She saw me when I didnâ€™t. She told me God loved me when I thought he had forsaken me. It was with her light and love that I found God again and found myself again and I have thrived ever since. She has always told me. Charish, I donâ€™t have many people I myself call my true friends and you are my true friend and I love you. I hold those words oh so dear to my heart especially now. Bonnie sue I will never forget you and I will continue the ministry you have taught that Jesus is love. I love you. Til we meet again my sweet friend and sister in Christ
I love you so much. You were always there for me when I needed you. You always gave me your best advice on life. We will always remember you forever.
