My Aunt Mickey

Bonnie (Pentelute) Horne
HORNE, Bonnie (Pentelute) Beloved wife of John Gerald Horne, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends on January 21, after a decade-long courageous battle with cancer at age 70. Bonnie's struggle against her illness was an inspiration to all who knew her. She will be remembered for her strength, wisdom and humor. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her children Michelle, Scott, Leslie, Allison and Tristan; her siblings Melanie, Barbie, David and Mark; and her 16 beautiful grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at noon Saturday January 24th at St. Paul's Church, 15 St. Paul St. Brookline (stpaulsbrookline.org) In lieu of flowers, Bonnie wished that donations be made in her memory to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
I just wanted to say that I am so grateful that this summer Brett's work took us to Boston so I could see my aunt Bonnie who we all call Mickey( she also would all ways correct us that it is Aunt not ant :) ). She is an amazing and strong woman. She has a great sense of humor & reminds me the most of my father, who she helped raise. I always look forward to her once a year visit and she will be greatly missed. But she leaves behind a great legacy & I know some day I will be able to see her again in the afterlife. I know right now she is having a great reunion with her mother, father, & sister Sherry. And that she is now and will forever be looking down on us especially her children and grand children. She has been an amazing example to her family of courage and knowledge. Because of her our family knows we carry the cancer gen and are more prepared for prevention. Our family will all miss her xoxo. (I will load a pic when I find one)
