I generally try really hard to only write about positive things on my blog, but I really felt the need to dedicate a post just to Bonnie because she followed my blog DAILY. She often checked several times during the day to see if I just happened to post twice. She was wonderful to my kids, she was a great friend to me, and made my dad incredibly happy. I was always amazed at her willingness to try new things - even at her weakest she was tackling ridiculous obstacles and smiling the whole way through. I am grateful for the things I have been able to learn about myself because of the relationship I had with her.
Two weeks after she and my dad got engaged, they learned about her cancer - and from that moment on the two of them filled a lifetime into fourteen months. They traveled all over the world and spent as much time as they possibly could with their loved ones. Rob and I are especially grateful for all the times they visited us and the opportunity we had to spend so much time with them in Hawaii. They are memories that we will cherish forever.
Please continue to keep my dad in your thoughts and prayers - I know that all of the support continues to help him through this.
