Hi my name is Gracye Judy and I am Bonnie's great granddaughter and I am thankful for all the flowers and notes from all the people. We got some from Medco Health and Rehab. They have been really supportive to us sense my great grandma has died and I want to say if you have a loved one and is ill and in need of help I would take them to Medco health and Rehab. I think she will be so proud of her grand kids and great grand kids. I wish she and papaw could see lyla grow up and get her drivers licens and see her say her first sentence. she has gone to a better place and is with her mom and dad.
