News from fellow RDH Lisa Darrow:(July 10, 2013)
I have some sad news about one of our MDHA sisters, Bonnie Nothoff, RDH.
Bonnie passed late last night in the arms of her husband, Jim.
Details of Bonnie's service arrangements have not been made, but we will inform you when they come.
Bonnie has been a gift and blessing to MDHA and all RDH's in the state of Michigan. Her passion, smile and dynamite personality radiated out to all she came in contact with. Let us celebrate her life.
