12: Dad, Congratulation on your 90th birthday. What an accomplishment! We wish you well and hope you can enjoy many more years. Through the years you've been a great example of selflessness by putting others needs first. Growing up we saw how you took care of your mother, mom and many others. You have been a good example for us to follow. We wish you well and may you continue to be blessed with good health. Love, Ed and family

20: Marion Bonner | Dear Dad, As you celebrate your 90th birthday I reflect on how fortunate I am to have you for my father. I daily thank my Heavenly Father for sending me to you and Mom. Thanks for setting a wonderful example for me to follow and teaching me how to live an honorable life. Your integrity, compassion, generosity, courage, and hard work are admired by all that are acquainted with you, family, relatives, friends, and neighbors. I love how you always wave or say "hello" to everyone you see, even if you don't know them.You always said, "It never hurts to be kind and friendly to others".
21: It is also fun when I go to a store or a place of business and I sign a check and people see the name Bonner or I go some place and introduce myself and they hear Bonner it never fails that I am asked if I know Dr. Bonner? When I answer, "Yes, he's my father", I always get a happy response in return. I think you were everyone's favorite teacher and principal. You have had a positive effect on the lives of many. I am honored to carry the surname of Bonner. Some of my happiest childhood memories started with the delicious breakfast you would make-grapefruit, peaches, fried eggs, and Chalks vitamins. A comforting memory happened when I had leg aches. You would always bring me a hot water bottle, and orange flavored baby aspirin and then rub my sore legs with your strong hands untill I fell asleep. You could also cure a sore throat with a lather of Vicks and a warm cloth around the neck. You worked miracles. A fun memory occurred when I would dance on your feet as you sang Mairzy Doats. Thanks for making growing up a happy experience. You understood the value of hard work and self reliance. You always find a way to help those in need, even when it meant going without. You truly honor the commandment "Love they Neighbor As Thyself". You have that rare quality of making everyone feel special. Thank you for taking such good care of Mom and other extended family members including myself. Your gentle ways bring great comfort. I wish you the happiest birthday ever this year. I feel so blessed to have you for my father. You are the kindest and most special father God created and he gave me you. I just want you to know how much you mean to me and I love you so much. I hope your birthday is as special as you are and that you have a wonderful day. Love you forever, Marion
22: Dear Dad,Happy 90th Birthday! You have personally witnessed well over one-third of our country's history! You lived through the Great Depression, defended our nation in World War II, viewed man landing on the moon, and helped build a great society.Congratulations! Most important of all, in good times and bad times, your life has been a noble tribute to fidelity, to love, to marriage, and to family. Thank you for being a wonderful person and father.When I think of you I think of three areas in which you excel: First, you are absolutely loyal to your family, your faith, your country, and your friends. Second, you know how to work. Third, you are a man of service.Your children will always remember your tenderness towards our mother. Her comfort and well being were paramount to you. You always treated her with gentleness and compassion. Your children know that you love our mother. Thank you for being so good to her.You rendered the same affection and service to your mother, your brothers and sisters, your in-laws, and your children. I am a grateful recipient of your love and service. Most of what I know about love and service I learned from observing you.Thank you for spending your time with your family. I will always remember our trips to Manor Lands where you taught us to make sling shots and saved me from the bear. I enjoyed our trip to the World's Fair in New York, and our Spring Break trips to Arches and Capitol Reef. Thank you for the fishing trips, the Scout Camps and so many other wonderful trips. You taught your children to love and enjoy our beautiful world.Thank you also for teaching your children how to work. We saw the great service you provided as a teacher and principal in the Salt Lake City School District. You supported your teachers and staff. You loved the children that attended your school. They loved and admired you. You were genuinely concerned for their welfare. Former teachers and students have shared many stories about how you impacted their lives for good.Thank you also for working hard to maintain our home and the home of your mother and in-laws. One of the most important things you taught your children, not from your words but from the way you lived your life, is generosity of spirit. You are generous with your possessions and financial resources. You are generous with your time. You are generous with your attitude. You never judge whether or not someone is worthy of help. You simply and quietly come to the aid of anyone who needs a hand. You care about people, not things. You are conscious of the needs of others. You recognize the needs of individuals, but you also are aware of global needs. In our family prayers, I always heard you remembering and praying for the needs of suffering people throughout the world.
23: Dave and Lori Bonner | You just didn't read to us from the Bible about the Good Samaritan, rather you took us along with you on the road to Jericho. A person who has accepted the gift of the Savior's atonement is in turn willing to give. Accepting the atonement makes us more sensitive, more generous, and more pleased to share with others. Perhaps this why the Savior used an example of gift giving in describing who would finally come home to him: Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungered and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (Matt. 25: 34-36, 40) You have a heart after the Lord's own heart and it is an honor to be your son.Thank you for being such a great father and example. I love you, David
