Condolence & Memory Journal

Ed, Josh & family. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Bonnie. I hadn't seen Josh in quite a while and he was here recently, and told me. I have known Bonnie since Josh & Max (Kistner) were in grammar school. We had many laughs, and some tears together about our boys. Thank you, Ed, for all you've done for Max & I. Rides, etc. I had been thinking of her a lot but couldn't manage to talk to her. My prayers are with you and your family. Cindy Cleary
