The family of Bonnie Lee Bishop would like to thank everyone who thought about us during this time of grieving during Bonnie’s passing. The prayers, card, phone call, visits, flowers, food and donations to the Senior Center were very much appreciated.

The Lake Stockton Healthcare employees took very good care of her during her latter time and safe from Covid as it was impossible for us to visit as we would like. We appreciated the care that Dr. Boeke gave her and his guidance for us.

We thank Bland-Hackleman Funeral Home, Susanne Gladden and Pastor Chad Daniel for the lovely service. May the Lord bless each one of you.
