To the family of Bonita Mills
I am sending you my deepest sympathy.
The family lived near us when we were living in Pine River and the kids often came to our house to play with my son (who was 2 years older than Bonnie and Bonita)
I knew the whole family and wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss
May the good times spent with her in the past help you through this time of loss and grief
May God hold you on the palm of His hand
With sympathy,
Elaine Sauer  ( I was married to Jerry Torkelson)
