Aunt Mona was always such a warm outgoing person. Family, friends, faith, football and fun were her priorities. But, the truth is she loved any sport when it came to her grandsons! She proudly wore her heart on her sleeve. Her strength and support of her loved ones will be greatly missed. We are so sorry for your loss, Vicki, Staci, Brody and Carder. May her spirit and laughter be a cherished reminder of her endearing love for each of you.
