Dear Ashley and Rick, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t express with paper and pen how I feel in my heart for your family. May your faith give you strength and may your love for each other get you through this difficult time. I am Mary Solozzo’s neighbor and many times visited with Bonnie when she babysat Addy and Liam. She was a wonderful mother and an awesome grandmother! I will miss her sweet smile and her infectious optimism. May God’s mercy and grace continue to be with you now and in the times of adjustment ahead.

Ashley Jupe Posted at 10:24pm

Thank you Jeanne.

I am very sorry for your loss please take comfort in the scripture found at Acts 24:15. Here you will find the Bible's hope for the future.

I am so sad to hear of Bonnie’s passing. I have such fond memories of her from working together and always hoped our paths would cross again. I was lucky enough to run into her last month and we spent almost an hour catching up while busy shoppers rushed passed us. Her spirit (and her hair, with glasses on her head) were exactly as I remembered. I’m glad her battle is over but I’m sad this world won’t have her spreading her infectious smile any longer. Prayers to her family, who she loved so dearly.

Ashley Jupe Posted at 10:22pm

Thank you Kate. I remember running into you and my mom that day. I was shocked to see my mom out but remember her telling me all about you later that night.

I’m so very saddened to hear about Bonnie. I’m sending my deepest sympathy to her children, grandchildren and the rest of the family. I worked with Bonnie for over 10 years and she was such a positive person with a perfect bob cut. I loved her sense of humor and soft laugh. I will keep Bonnie in my prayers. May you find peace of heart in this difficult time.

I'm so sorry for the loss of our Bonnie. She was a wonderful friend growing up in Windsor and we had lots of fun. I'll always remember how we could chat and laugh for hours over the smallest silly things. I saw her last at Ruth's funeral and was glad to reconnect - life goes by so quickly when you're looking back. Bonnie will brighten heaven the way she has all of our lives. My sincere condolences to her children, sisters, aunt and friends. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend her memorial services. ~ Fondly Mary Beth McQueeney (Beth Riley) Newbury, MA 978-273-0700
