Dear Gordy ... thinking of you and your family in your loss of Bonnie, knowing you have God's precious gift of memories to keep her with you always. May His peace be with you in these first days of her absence here. Gordy, I think of you with fondness as one of our Rock Valley family members -- such lovely memories I have of all who shared their time there! Thank you and God bless you....
