Services will be held at Spirit of Christ in Arvada, Colorado on July 17, 2018 @1pm. Following services, there will be a “life remembrance” ceremony.
She provided the following legacy:
“That those who really believed in me, for who I am, really am, would come to understand that …not who, when, or why I did something, but instead, how it helped to make yours and my day better. That nothing was ever done out of anything but love and wanting to make your day better, and our life easier during good and bad times. When we give to someone we should give with the understanding that we may never receive something in return or even expect it. That things come back to us from different people in different ways. I believe we can make everything have some positive effect, providing that we let it. To always look for the good, not the bad in every situation.”
We will all miss Bonita dearly and hope that her life and passing provide others the insight into happiness, patience, joy, and perseverance. In lieu of flowers, Bonita requested that donations are made to those who helped make her last days comfortable.
Please donate in her honor to TRU Community Care Hospice Center
