Our prayers are with all of the Simon family. Bonnie was our friend for the past 40 years. Working with her was a pleasure and hearing her stories was most entertaining. I loved it when one of the Bell Ladies, at our monthly lunch would say they had visited some place and Bonnie would remark that she had been there. She even went to the UP of Michigan, my mother's home, to invest in the casino there. I'll miss our discussions and our shared laughter. She was a character and we will all miss the many interesting stories of her large family. It was wonderful calling her my friend!
