Will always cherish the memories growing up on the farm. Although the last few years were difficult, we still had some good laughs. Gram Meier loved coming to visit you. I'm sure you're both smiling down on us now, along with all our other loved ones. Love you Gram! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

I know that I have only met you a few times, but you were so sweet. I want to thank you for helping to make such a wonderful granddaughter. Bonnie is one of the greatest people I have ever met in my life. She has saved so many lives it's hard to count. She has helped me to be the nurse I am today. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace Gram.
