Bonnie Haynie, the mother of ApologetiX bassist Keith Haynie, went home to be the Lord in the early hours of Thursday, January 3. She had just turned 80 on November 5.
Thanks to all of you who prayed that she'd make it through the Christmas holiday and that her remaining days would be as painless as possible. God graciously answered those prayers.
Keith's wife, Krista, adds the following:
Thank you all for your prayers. She did indeed go in her sleep as she requested from the Lord. Anyone that ever took the time to have a conversation with Bonnie was blessed to know her. We already miss her and ask for your prayer to get through this. Thank you all for being such good friends, we are truly blessed to know you as well.Bonnie is survived by Keith; his two older sisters, Joyce and Sheila; and his younger brother David. Keith's older brother, Ray, died in January 2003.
Please pray for Keith and his family. Bonnie and her children were very, very close. Bonnie was eager to go, but it's still very hard for her children and grandchildren.
