Oh Bon-Bon--you were the best to work with--such a dry wit--but always jumped in to help wherever you could. We all grew up together listening to your horse stories, your families achievements, cleaning out barn chores, and your precious pups. You are not forgotten--you are a precious memory yourself to us--the old ICU team at SOMC--and beyond..do you think God will allow gambling in heaven? rest easy bon----
