Vicki and Staci so sorry to hear this news about your dear Mother. She was always so friendly, sometimes she spotted me before you did. Of course we were always out shopping. I think the last time I saw her was that night at Tumbleweed. You are in my thoughts, both of you ..Love you guys, Friends, Sally Tennyson and Sara

I cherish the memories of the Thursday night football dinners and tearing tickets and making sandwiches at the home games on Friday nights. Mona had a heart of gold and an ornery personality that always brought me a smile. You could see the love for her family when she looked at them and her laughter was infectious. She will be missed, keeping you in our prayers. Wendy Gorby
