  1. Louis, I am so sorry to hear about Bonnie leaving to go to her Heavenly home. Like Paul, she wanted to stay and continue the work you all are doing but she longed for that eternal rest. The Coventry Hills church has had you and her in our prayers constantly throughout her illness.

    It was six years ago last month that my dear wife made that transition so I can truthfully say that there will be a big hole left in your life. However, God knows how to fill that spot so my prayer is that he will give you comfort and strength to continue.

    I will be in MS the 2nd week of June. If you are around perhaps I will see you then.

  2. We are so very sorry for your loss. What a wonderful Christian lady! –Andy & Marsha Robison

  3. Louis, you are in mine and Karen’s prayers. We are so sorry for your loss, May God bless you and your family through this difficult time, and may you have comfort in knowing God is faithful to His promise of eternal life for those in Christ Jesus.

    Robert Johnson

  4. Louis, I am praying for you. It hurts to lose a loved one. Let me know if I can listen or help.

  5. Wayne Parker Says:

    We are so sorry, Louis. Sister Bonnie touched and blessed so many lives. She will be unbelievably missed. May God give you and your family comfort during this time of loss.

  6. Dawn Weaver Says:

    Louis, we are so sorry to hear this. You both have done so much in your lives to help others, and Bonnie’s smile and love showed Christ in everything she did. You have been in my prayers every morning and will continue to be. May God comfort you and your family. We love you all.

  7. Louis, when I think of the word “team,” I think of you and Bonnie. I cannot imagine the emotional blow of no longer having her at your side. She was truly a virtuous woman who helped make you a man respected in the gates. We have remained vigilant in prayer for her and now continue to do so for you. You are a dear brother.

    • Hi my dear brother, the peace of God which passeth all understanding shall keep your heart and mind through Christ Jesus., I pray in Jesus name amen. Sister Caressie Northside Church Christ Butler, Ala. Where I brought the truth and it’s for sale.

  8. Gordon Hogan Says:

    Louis we sorrow with you and at the same time rejoice that Bonnie has graduated to eternal presence with our Lord. Gordon & Jane

  9. Louis, She was a beautiful example and helpmate, always at your side at every lectureship. Prayers will continue as you grieve for your loss.

  10. Beth Says:

    Bonnie was constantly writing articles and doing the other good works she was given to do or found to do. Her modest dress and continual labor of love testified to her convictions as well as her dedication. Our eldest adopted daughter was born the same year Bonnie was born. That is a sobering thought. May the Lord bless her memory in the minds of all her loved ones.
