    My sincere condolences to the Eager family. I got to know Bonnie when she was rooming across the hall from my mother at Mitchell Manor back in the summer of 2018. She was such a sweet lady and I never forgot her. Bonnie loved her family and spoke of them often. My sincere condolences to her family.
