best way to write unloading forms vb6

i am trying to determine the best way to write this procedure that is in the main form
and is ran after a bonus

 'bonus runs complete unload loaded forms
     
          If IsFormLoaded("frmBonus12") Then 'function bonus start form first screen to always show
                'informing user that 12 free runs are won all wins are doubled
                  Unload frmBonus12 'function
                  Set frmBonus12 = Nothing 'release any public variables
                End If
                  
                If IsFormLoaded("frmCleoBonus") Then 'function bonus 80 number grid to run 12 times
                  Unload frmCleoBonus
                  Set frmCleoBonus = Nothing 'release any public variables
                End If
                
                If IsFormLoaded("frmBonusComplete") Then 'function bonus result if no bonus win
                  Unload frmBonusComplete
                  Set frmBonusComplete = Nothing 'release any public variables
                End If
                  
                If IsFormLoaded("frmBonusWin") Then 'function bonus result if a win with images of numbers
                   Unload frmBonusWin
                   Set frmBonusWin = Nothing 'release any public variables
                End If

Open in new window

maybe i don't need to check if a form is loaded before unloading it or setting it to nothing
also i think instead of all the if's I could use ElIf

Dim frm As Form

For Each frm In Forms
    ' There could also be an If frm.Name = "blah" or frm.Name ="Yada" Then...
    Unload frm
    Set frm = Nothing
Next

Open in new window

BTW, the Forms collection that my For/Next loop looks at only includes forms that are loaded, so you don't need to account for or worry about the ones that aren't loaded.

Is this correct ?
Dim frm As Form

For Each frm In Forms
    ' There could also be an If frm.Name = "blah" or frm.Name ="Yada" Then..
The calling frm = frmCleo which will not be unloaded
 if not frm = frmCleo then
    Unload frm
    Set frm = Nothing
end if
Next

Instead of

if not frm = frmCleo then

do

if frm.Name <> " frmCleo" then
