This past week we lost a true Warwick treasure in Bonni M. Oswald. Bonni was the epitome of the independent business owner, the backbone of any small town, civic leader, volunteer, loving head of her family and someone whose first response was “how can I help?” As my wife and I embarked on our small business careers, Bonni was starting hers, she came to meet us and very confidently proclaimed that if we trusted her with our insurance needs she would never let us down. In 40 years of business, she never did! Bonni had a big heart, and her spirit will always be woven into the fabric of this great Town. Condolences to her family; and to Bonni, RIP.
With school out, our kids are out walking and biking around Town. Please slow down, exercise caution and help keep our children safe this summer.
“Perhaps no emotion cools sooner than that of gratitude.”
