Dear Mom/Grandma/Bonnie,
Thank you for showing unconditional love to everyone in your life, and for all the special moments and memories you've given to our son, your grandson Patrick. His life and ours are better for the times we spent with you. Thank you for always letting my husband, Steve, know how much you loved him and how proud you are of him. May God bless you always. I wish lots of love and strength and gratitude to Dan, and also to Lisa and Judy.
Love Forever,
Jennifer

I enjoyed working with your mom at the ED in Indiana. She would always keep us laughing. I will never forget the blue birds that she would always draw and she
had given me one to hang on my christmas tree which is on it every year since she gave it to me. She was very proud of her family and would talk about each
one of you. She loved each one of you dearly. She will be greatly missed.

Danny, Lisa, Judy, and Steve,
Your Mom was so beautiful, inside and out. She (along with Aunt Mamie) was my inspiration to become a nurse! She always seemed so glamorous to me but also a genuinely nice person. I have wonderful memories of babysitting you, Dan & Lisa, in the trailer at the farm. And, I know first hand how well respected she was at Altoona Hospital when she worked there...it made me proud to say she was my Aunt. Life wasn't always easy or fair, but she carried through with courage and a smile, in part because she had 4 children she loved so much, but mostly because that's the kind of person she was.
I will miss her and will always carry good memories.

YOUR MOM WAS A GREAT PERSON AND FRIEND, SHE ALWAYS HAD POSITIVE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT EVERYTHING, NEVER NEGATIVE ABOUT ANYHING. WHEN YOUR MOM AND HER PALS FROM IRMC ER GOT TOGETHER, WE LAUGHED THE ENTIRE TIME AND HAD A LOT OF FUN. SHE WILL BE MISSED BY ALL. MY CONDOLENCES ARE WITH YOUR FAMILY DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

Sincerely,
Charlene Valazak
