She was standing next to a little bench where Bonnie sets ground falls from her Bartlett pear tree, and she was enjoying her juicy pear so much that Bonnie decided to take a photo. A moment later, she noticed one of Faith’s minion toys was nestled among the pears. Faith is the daughter of Alicia and Dain Schroeder of Quincy.
