Tribute to Bonnie: A Blog Entry by Enrique A. Franco (January 10, 2012)
"In a time in my life when I was thrown onto a raft in a sea of hopelessness and despair, Bonnie heard my voice. ... Bonnie was a beautiful person. Her memory will reflect that. Her actions and efforts will reflect that. She was compassionate and selfless. And so, here I am writing about a great friend that is gone. Although she has left us, EVERYTHING she has done will remain. EVERYONE she has touched will remember."
Memories of Bonnie G.: A Blog Entry by Loreen Willenberg (January 10, 2012)
"Bonnie always encouraged me to write, something I love to do but have a hard time finding time for. My constant 'north-star', she would remind me how important it was for at least one member of the HIV Controller community to share their story to the world. How on Earth she found time to carefully edit the pieces I managed to produce is beyond me ... she was always on the road to another conference, another interview or a work-related task."
Remembering Bonnie: A Blog Entry by Aless Piper (January 6, 2012)
"I am endlessly grateful for the gift Bonnie gave me when she urged me to reconsider [blogging for TheBody.com]; of course I did. What I got in return was that elusive community Ned Weeks longed for in The Normal Heart, one of passionate, wonderful individuals committed to spreading the truth, and ending AIDS, and something I love to do with all my heart (blog for TheBody.com). And now I will not get to thank her. I thought, as so many do so often, that there would be more time."
Dear Bonnie (January 6, 2012)
"I have probably not talked with Bonnie in more than a year, but I thought about her often. I tried to call her several times but I guess life circumstances got in the way of us connecting and for that I am very sad. I would have liked to have told her how much I appreciate the opportunities she gave to me."
