Words cannot express how I feel about the loss of my good friend Bonita. God works in mysterious ways and unfortuantely for all us God decided that Bonita had completed her mission and has moved on to everlasting life. One day my friend, I and many others will celebrate everlasting life with you and our Savior. I am so sad for your son and your family but they can rest assured that you that you had a good life established many friendships and will never be forgotten. Bonita please ask God to bless us as we prepare to join you some time in the future. May you rest in peace my friend. Much love to you from the Cervantes family.

I worked with Bonita on multiple reviews. She was always very kind, funny, and helpful. We had the best time in St. Louis. Wishing her family peace to bring comfort and loving memories to forever hold in their heart.

To Devon and the family of precious Bonita - Although we were geographically miles apart, we shared a close relationship in our jobs with DCMA. We were blessed to spend time together on many occasions. Bonita was always cheerful, smart, bright and so much fun to be around! During a TDY trip to San Diego, we crossed the border to Mexico and that memory will always be a big part of my life. Bonita was purchasing a leather coat and the shenanigans (due to our naivete) we underwent for this venture looked like a drug deal going down. We laughed till we cried! Crossing back over the border brought even more hillarity Dear, dear Bonita - you will be missed for your intelligence, your caring, your loyalty, your wit and so many other attributes. It was more than a pleasure to have been a coworker and a friend. The memories we shared in so many places will remain. While we live on in pain, God has called you to your just reward and will assure that you rest in peace. It was a blessing to know you and may your family be granted God's peace.

My prayers go out to her entire family. I worked at the front desk of Chagrin Highlands and had the pleasure of forming a friendship with Benita. Every time we texted, we always said "I love you"! Her inspiring words will leave an impact on my life forever! Special prayers to her son. God needed her more than us, but it still hurts so much!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Rita Hicks left a message on December 9, 2016:
A group of us had the opportunity to work with Bonita over the past three years. Bonita was a member of our team and we admired her dedication, strong beliefs and passion for her profession. In times such as this, we are tempted to ask our friend and colleague to return to us, don't leave us. But in accordance with all of our different beliefs and practices, we should choose to try to live in a way that we honor our time shared with Bonita and practice the various lessons learned. For as much as we would like her to be here with us, a plan much higher was formed. We pray for peace to Bonita's loving family, cherished friends and many colleagues around the world. We also pray that the passage of time will lessen our sadness so that we will be able to joyfully speak of all of the times spent and the memories made. From Bonita's M&P teammates at Ft. Lee, VA: Alexander Miranda, Charles Iannarelli, Jack Little, Rita Hicks, Pablo Ospina, Farris Turner, Yataiva Harris, Regina Schauer, Norman Mann, Harry Diaz-Agosto

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Bonita for only a short time and she was a breath of fresh air, always a smile and a positive outlook on everything. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family.
Scott Coffey left a message on December 8, 2016:
So sorry for your loss. Bonita was a wonderful person who I not only enjoyed working with but enjoyed long discussions about God and Jesus Christ. Gone early from our midst: however as Paul stated: "to be absent from the body is to be with Christ". As I ponder the loss I try to keep that verse in mind so we can think of her in a beautiful place and presence.

Our loved ones will live again! What a wonderful time that will be!

As a colleague at DCMA, she was one of the most intelligent and caring people I have ever met. She was a consummate professional in all aspects of her life. The news of her passing really struck a chord with me and caused me to do some serious soul searching in my own life. My sincere condolences to the Dunham family and friends.

I don't know where to start. Bonita was a wonderful friend, co-worker, and mentor. She taught me a lot within the short amount of time we worked together. I cherished the times we walked and talked about life in general. Bonita was one of a kind; smart caring, just to start. My thoughts and prayers go out to Bonita's family.

My deepest condolences to Devin and the rest of Bonita's family and friends. I had the pleasure of working with her for years, and, more importantly, she was a wonderful friend. We emailed often over the past several years and I will miss her. Through her health struggles these past 15 months, she was strong, brave, confident, and still showed compassion to those who cared for her. She was a truly remarkable woman and I am blessed to have been able to call her my friend.
