I worked with Bonnie at Gregg's back in the day and always enjoyed working with her. She was young at heart and always treated everyone as equals. In recent years, I learned she was related to my brother's ex-wife's family and she always asked about my nephews and how they were doing. She was a friend to the end. Rest in peace, Bonnie, and my condolences to your family. Kelly
