Finally at rest

My half sister Bonnie passed away on 10/17/2016 after a long fight with cancer and other illness.  She and I had a relationship that was complicated.  Her Mom was my Mom, but I was raised to know her as an aunt as my grandparents had adopted her when she was 4 years old.  Over the years, we Johansen kids were brought to realize that our real relationship with Bonnie was half sister.  Confusing, but family none the less.

It is with sadness that we say farewell to Bonnie.  I'm thankful to have come to know her 3 children through the magic of Facebook, and I am very sad for their loss.  I won't be back home in time to attend her memorial, but my heart will be with the family as they say their goodbyes.
