  1. Bonny was a great friend and neighbor. Everyone on Harbor Island knew both Bonny & Norma, as they were so loving and gracious. Our neighborhood has lost two very special friends.

  4. There’s nothing that quite compares to losing Dad. I miss mine to this day after losing him on Mother’s Day 1990. My best to Kim and Larry as Larry makes his way without his beloved and now missed Dad.
