    We knew each other for years, and I grew to care and respect you as a person but more importantly as a true friend. Your smile and your incredible zest for life will be sorely missed. But the suffering is over and you are with the love of your life. May God keep you in his loving arms always.. Love always Joe C.

    I only knew Steve and Bonnie for a short time, but my prayers are with their family and friends at this very sad time. I found out that Bonnie liked fairies and I am so happy that I was able to give her one for her birthday which I found out that she had placed it where the sun would hit it and she said she loved it…the one good thing out of all of this is that they are together forever now without all the pain and suffering..

    My thoughts and prayers are with Bonnie and Steve’s family during this difficult time. I worked with Bonnie and I am glad that I got to know her. Bonnie always had a smile on her face even when the going was tough. I only knew Steve through Bonnie and I know that he was everyting to her. The only comforting thing through all of this sadness is that they will both be together. Rest in peace.

    You two were the epitomy of the “perfect couple”. We’ve been friends for a very long time, and now a piece of our lives is gone forever. May you enjoy the “everafter” together and in the light of God’s love. We will remember you both. You will be forever loved and missed.

    Love Mark & Patty

    I have never known a couple so in tune with one another than Bonnie and Steve; I’ve know Bonnie since first grade in Walpole. After losing touch with her for many, many years, I had the pleasure of meeting up with her again in Norwood and meeting the love of her life, Steve. Bonnie was always a very special person and although it pains me that she (and Steve) are no longer with us, they are together forever as they planned. God Bless both of you in your newest journey.

    Bonnie and Steve:

    You have made us laugh through the years..
    You’ve filled our hearts with love
    Now our eyes have filled with tears…
    Since you were called from above

    We shall remember the good…
    We shall remember no pain
    We will love as you would…
    ’till we can meet again

    For we know your journey has just begun…
    Your love shall grow ever more
    in a place as warm as the sun…
    And know you are ones to adore

    Love always ~ Mary & Jim / Jen & Jimmy / Derek

    Bonnie was my aunt. I only found this obituary today, almost 5 years later. Bonnie was only 3 years older than I and actually babysat me as an 8 and 9 year old. I had not spoken to her since my father (Richard Woody Woodman) died. Rest in peace, Aunt Bonnie.
