  • Bonnie was an outstanding individual. She had a genuine interest in people. She was outgoing and kind to all individuals. She will definitely be missed by all who knew her. I know that I will miss her.

  • To My Forever Family: My Niece Tara, Sisters Dorothy Harmon and Juanita Burks and love of my life Alonzo Bishop. Although I am not able to be physically present please know that I am with you all in fervent prayer and a love that transcends time. I loved Bonnie very much , truly she was one of a kind and her love for her daughter and family is not to be compared to any. I am so grateful for the great love she had for my treasured love Alonzo and for that I will forever be there for each of you should you ever need me for anything. I believe that God has redeemed her to himself and she is resting safely in his arms. I pray that God’s strength will be with you all and that your love and unity will continue.

  • I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Bonnie, a former workmate. I extend my condolences and prayers to her family and friends. Revelation 21:3-5.

  • To The Family of Bonnie,
    You are all in our Prayers.
    I am a member of the Postal Supervisors Association (NAPS) and first met Bonnie in 2000 in Alaska. We both went to all the Biennial National Conventions, since we were Delegates, in different Cities up until 2018. I am sure she shared stories and memories about all the different Cities we went to, for a week, every two years. We worked in the Convention Hall during the long days and then, in the evenings there were a variety of different events we could attend. Bonnie was part of the group I would see at the Conventions. We had a good time over the years sharing stories about our Postal Service employment and our NAPS involvement. I just found out about her passing today and am heartbroken. I know she is missed by her Family and Friends but she shared a good life and her memories will live on.
