..........Your Memory Lives On .......... the hearts of your family........



Thank you for visiting Bon's memorial.
The flowers and visits are so appreciated.


Daddy Bon & Ma Willie were married July 19, 1924 in Pittsburg, Tx.

They had 7 children:
Laurrent William "Preacher" & Laurice (twins)
Henry "Hambone"
Marvin "Dink"
Willie B. "Bill"

Daddy Bon farmed cotton, sold fresh milk, and hunted mink and fox to support his family. He bought 150 acreas of land in the early 30's. The entire family worked in the fields to help pay for the land. All but 2 acreas of the land is still owned by the family today.

Through the years, I had the pleasure of meeting 5 or 6 people who knew and remembered Daddy Bon.
Each person that I talked with told what a good and honest man he was. Not once did I hear an unkind word about Daddy Bon. What a legacy this man left behind.

The grandchildren and great grandchildren who never had the pleasure of meeting Daddy Bon have grown up hearing the stories that have been passed down about him.
As long as the stories are told, Daddy Bon's memory will live on.


........"Henry Bonner Hallonquist"........

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I'd exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
The place you filled one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew.....
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.


Like a tiny seed
That fell to earth.
When no one cared
Or knew it's worth.
Through wind and rain
Sleet and snow.
It sprouted roots
And began to grow.
Now Whoever thought
That you and me.
Would be one branch
Of that mighty tree.
