“You were my critic and my fan, never afraid to tell me the truth if you felt I could do better and never stingy for words of praise if I did well,” Dina Bonnevie said. Over the years, they have become each other’s confidantes and shoulders they can lean during difficult times in their lives.
Dina also shared that she and Cherie believed that they “had to search for our higher selves and what purpose we had to fulfill in life and most of all what we could impart to this world as our contribution, our legacy.” In a portion of her post, Dina also talked about the time when she and Cherie had a lengthy conversation in Italy and all the conversations that they had, and the pain, sorrow, and joys they shared with each other.
Dina Bonnevie also said that Cherie Gil’s life wasn’t perfect but she gave her all in everything that she did, under whatever circumstance. “You were always true and present in mind, body and spirit. That was your legacy!” she said about her friend.
