    I didn't know Bonnie very well, but I bought a bunch
    of green bay packer stuff, at her garage sale on co.Q. This mothers day in may, I delivered flowers
    to her for lakeview floral. when she answered the door, she invited me in, and asked my name, we had a nice visit,and I remember that pretty smile.
    she seemed to be a very sweet lady. God Bless the family through this tough time!

    So sorry Kathy and Tom and your family, to hear about your mother. I remember fondly of her and your Dad Don and your Grandparents Dan & Deal from about as far back as I can remember anything...used to ride with my uncle Johnny Morgan in the Carters Logging Trucks and when we would get done for the day, we would always go to Stoll's Club 29 and I would play in the back with Tom and Kathy. Although I have not seen or spoke with her for quite sometime...I think at one of her garage sales at the house on N & Q.....
    Will always have the fond memories of the "old times" in "The Valley" that I had with my folks, Bud & Tille and the Stolls, Cockerams, Morgans, etc..and all there happy times and parties.

    My sincere sympathies to the family...
