Time could have passed.
But the pain is still there.
This week, Sister Wives star Meri Brown went on social media to pay tribute to the woman who raised her and loved her through thick and thin:
Bonnie was her mother.
“Two years,” he said. Two years have passed since she was a beautiful part of this world.
The owner of Lizzie’s Heritage Inn wrote in the caption of a video she posted on Instagram and TikTok on Sunday, March 26: “So many things I would have liked to share with her, talk to her about, and have her hold my hand and heart through.”
“This woman, whom I am proud and lucky to call my mother, was the perfect example of strength, kindness, and love. If you knew her, you loved her and she loved you back.
“I will always love her, and so will many other people. She will be missed always.”
Meri wrote when she lost her mother that Bonnie died “suddenly” and “way too soon,” and that “76 years and 17 days was not enough time for the world to feel the beautiful spirit of this beautiful woman.”
People who watched Sister Wives knew Bonnie because she was in the show sometimes and because she helped her daughter run a bed and breakfast in Utah.
Brown was clearly deeply affected by the tragedy.
This makes sense, of course.
“I don’t know how I’ll live the rest of my life without her,” she said at the time.
“Mom, I love you more than words can say, but I’m sure you already know that.
“You are loved and missed, and I know you are so happy to be celebrating with your dad on the other side, hugging your daughter and son who left us too soon, getting to know your dad, and reuniting with your parents.”
In September 2022, an episode of Sister Wives told the story of Bonnie’s sudden death.
Brown said on air that she can remember the day she died “very clearly and in great detail.”
“It was hard enough to be alone in my car on the way to her and pray that I would get there before it was too late. Getting the call that she had died was really heartbreaking.”
