On March 16, a massive fire destroyed 26 buildings at the Windsor Green Condominiums in Carolina Forest. One of the residents who lost everything is Bonde Rea.
Rea runs the after school program at Carolina Forest Elementary School. She is a widow who lost her husband to cancer two years ago. Two months ago, still coping with that loss, Bonde had to face losing her home in the Windsor Green fire.
Her possessions, including photos, heirlooms and gifts from her husband, went up in flames, never to be seen again.
However, Rea keeps a positive attitude. She is thankful for her life, her kids and the children she works with, who help to keep a smile on her face.
