    Toogy, Bonnie, and family….we are so sorry to hear of the loss of Mrs. Sybil. I have fond memories of her as a child when she and Mother visited, not to mention the long conversations we had at Donalson and at church. We discussed a variety of things but the conversation always ended with you and Nickie as teenagers and how she “handled you two”. I know you are hurting but find peace in knowing she is with the Heavenly Father now and she and Mom are discussing you and Nickie and those teenage years and I am sure they are laughing and rejoicing Prayers for you all at this difficult time and may God wrap his loving arms around you and comfort you. May He give you strength in the coming days.
