I was deeply saddened to hear of Bonnies passing. Although I have not seen her in years, she and I grew up together, and where very close cousins. I always loved going to Orange cove to visit as a kid. Then she and James moved to North Edwards, which was great. When my mother was sick with cancer, Bonnie was always sending her cards of encouragement, mother and I really appreciated those cards and looked forward to them. James and your loving family, I am so sorry for you loss.. REST IN PEACE BONNIE. Dian Davis Burnett

I have so many memories of my grandma that will stay with me forever. She was the sweetest person that I have ever known. Every weekend I would love going to Grandma and Grandpas. I will always remember the breakfasts I would have there, she would make a chocolate gravy with biscuits, and I would eat about 30. They were the best!! She would always tell me that it was just plain chocolate sauce warmed up, but it would never

Many years ago we became friends with Bonnie and Red and their wonderful family. We went from Sweden to visit with them in 1995, 1999 and 2004 and they were just so nice and wonderful to us. We spent hours on the roads of California and Nevada together and weeks at their home. It was such a joy to be around them. We are very sad to have lost our wonderful friend Bonnie. Our thoughts and prayers go to Red and family. Bonnie may be gone but our fond memories will always be there. Rest in peace.

I have known the Westmoreland's since 1968. Rhonda and I became best friends in the 4th grade. Bonnie and James was a second family to me. She was a wonderful person and always made me feel like I was part of the family. I will miss her deeply. I just want to send my love to all of you and want you to know that I am here for you always. My love to all, Love Linda

I loved my Aunt Bonnie's laugh; a dry sort of chuckle. I loved her house, with toys in the front closet, magnets on the fridge, and all her paint by number works of art. She had a soft nature, a soft face, and she was kind. I feel like part of my childhood has passed with her.
Randy, Gary, Rhonda, Kevin and Uncle James I am so sorry for you loss. I'll be praying for you and remembering with you.

While growing up there were two places us kids absolutely loved going to. One of those was Aunt Bonnie's. "the other was grandpa's and grandma's."
We always called it "going to the desert" Many of my fondest memories are from that house that was never completely built. "is it done?" yet always filled with love and at some times a lot of kids. I cherish every moment ever spent there and talking with Aunt Bonnie. I even spent a good bit
