    While we did not have the opportunity to meet her personally, we know she was very special to everyone in her life. Wishing all of her family and friends our deepest condolences during this difficult time.

    Though I didn't get the opportunity to know Ann very long, the time we did spend was special. I loved the way her face lit up when we talked about books, her cat and yarn work. She had such a beautiful smile. When she spoke, her voice was so warm. She had to be one smart cookie! I truly wish I had known her earlier in her life, before her illness. I miss her.

    What I will miss most about Grandma is our talks. We would talk about books, television and she liked to share stories of her childhood and how she met Grandpa. She was so sweet and loving and I will miss her dearly.

    I enjoyed my talks with grandma I would tell her how my family was doing. And what trouble the kids were causing now Usually she would respond, With a story of when my mother or aunts were younger. I thinks that was her way of saying kids will be kids. I hope she has found grandpa and can rest happy now.

    My deepest sympathy to Elaine and Tim for your loss of Bonnie mother and grandmom. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4 Joleen Goens

    Bonnie was a kind, thoughtful, and exceptionally intelligent woman. I will miss our conversations that almost always brought us to tears or laughter. Her devotion to God and family was admirable and unshaken. She and Harold have touched us deeply and we are grateful for the time we were able to share with them both.

    I remember the fun weekends we spent with Harold & Bonnie at the Flea Markets & Antique Shows in Louisville. While Gordon & Harold would talk antiques and treasures with people, Bonnie & I would slip off and go find the beautiful jewelry hidden away in boxes at other booths. She loved jewelry and always found something she treasured. Bonnie had your heart, she was kind, caring, gentle, supportive and had just the right touch of mischief to make our trips so delightful. Together again in Heaven Harold & Bonnie now Rest in Peace and the world is a little less brighter today.

    In sorrow our hearts dwell this day, someone special has gone her way, someone who is loved so dear, someone God wanted near. sleep in peace sweet Mother mine, rest your gentle spirit kind, let her soul be at your side, among the angels in the sky. For comfort Lord we do pray, to ease this pain we feel today, our hearts are heavy with despair, we seek your solace; we ask for care. look down upon us from above and guide our family with your love, take us in your loving arms, and help us Father to be strong. So, Lord, we humbly ask we do, to keep our Mother safe with you, although we do not question why, our hearts are broken deep inside, you see Lord she has meant so much, she has such love, a gentle touch. God of Goodness, Lord of All, please help us bear this heavenly call. How quiet this night, how soft this day, how easy her love shined our way, how sweet her smile, how gentle her heart, how hard for us it is to part. as dark the Heavenly night seems now, we know life goes on somehow, and someday we will joyously be, together again in eternity.

    My mom was gentle and shy. She loved her family deeply. She will be missed every single day. I love you mom

    The first time I met Grandmom was for her 50th wedding anniversary dinner, the waitress asked her what was the secret to a long lasting marriage. Her response, the patience of a Saint. Now as a wife to her grandson for almost 12 years, that advice was the most helpful advice I've ever heard. I always keep that in mind. I know she knew I would take care of her grandson just as she cared for Grandpop. Until we meet again Grandmom, I love you.

    Rest in peace Grandmom. Thank you for all the books, classical music, and brunches we shared. I loved our brunches at I-hop and then going to the library to find new books to read. Say hi to Grandpop for us. Til we meet again❤️

    My dear Mom, I will miss you so much. You have always been a very important part of my life and you always will be. I don't know how I will carry on without you, it will be so difficult. It is a comfort to know that you are with Dad again and you will remain a strong presence in my life. You are the best Mom a daughter could ask for. I love you with all of my heart. You are my inspiration. ❤️ Love, Elaine

    "Bonnie" Gross was a strong partner to my brother, Harold. She supported his military career and raised a family through turbulent periods. I had the chance a few years back, to travel to Fairfield to visit Harold and Bonnie. The trip's one purpose was to thank Harold and Bonnie for the great example they had provided me over my entire life. They provided an example of love and a stable marriage that was much needed in my life. While I always received advice from Harold throughout my own military career, Bonnie's example as a loving wife and mother, while exercising firm discipline when needed, certainly influenced my own approach to life, marriage and family. Sometimes, these things sneak up on us -- understanding the influence others had on our own lives isn't always obvious until much later in life, and after much review. I'm grateful I had a brother like Harold, and a sister-in-law like Bonnie, to show me that success in life comes in many different forms -- and indeed, to show me that there was a good life possible beyond the chaos of Newport, KY. I will cherish their memories forever.
