  1. Hi Marky and Billy, I was so sorry to hear of Bon’s passing. She was one of those people that were greater than life! I had so much growing up with the Slades in my life. I can still hear Bon laughing and her smile was so infectious

    You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love you. Nancy

  2. Sorry for your loss. Bon was always a great lady and was a pleasure growing up and getting to know. She was like a second mom.

    She always knew that you guys were the trouble makers and I was the ‘innocent one’!
