This message is to you aunt Bonnie. Your were a big part of my life growing up in Alexandria.You are a foundation of my childhood memories.It seems like yersterday I had to eat fish on fridays and you served meat but you knew of my convictions and never tried to sway me it would not of taken much to change my mind.When I was thirsty as a overly rambunctious child 24/7 you told me to drink from the hose outside I know I was a handful.Later in life we got to be friends as adults.Growing up in Indiana was a true blessing and as a adult I am proud to say my family and friend as a young person gave me the midwest ehtics I carry with me today.You were the epitome of the 50s 60s mom who loved her family above all did the daily chores of a true mother and housewife. We can only wish the world in these days and times could experience a mother like you were.The world was a better place with you Bonnie thank you for setting the standards in life we will always tressure in our lives forever. Your neice Robin Girting Maratta
