Bonita was a gracious and bountiful person that would want everyone to share in this loss and to experience healing together. Due to what the nation is going through with Coronavirus, we are required to limit the numbers of those attending to a very limited number. It pains us to keep the viewing and funeral to invite only. We want to express that our love reaches further than the people invited. We love you all.
