    Mona we never got to finish many of the plans we had made. But I will think of all the memories we did make. My heart goes out to her family and friends. Mona you are in the hands of the Great Spirit now and you ride the lightning bolt. So I will see you streaking across the sky’s. “Touch the earth, love the earth, honor the earth: her plains, her valleys,her hills and her seas: rest your spirit in her solitary places. For all in time I will see you there.

    You be missed more then any one every really knows. Mona I just want to say thank-you for taking the time to be my friend you were there for me when I needed a helping hand. There even when my family was not. So I hope everyone truly knows that we have lost one of the great ones. We will miss you greatly but, knowing your no longer suffering and in pain is enough to set my heart at ease. R.I.P. fly with the angles and know we will meet again one day until then we will hold you near.

  5. Rene' Kuehne says:

    I don’t even know where to begin. Mona was an amazing friend and neighbor to me and my boys. She was kind, understanding, supportive and made me more meals than I can count when I was down with a broken leg. She understood and gave her time, wisdom, patience and kindness to my grandson who has Autism.
    She loved Scott, Bobby, Chad and her animals with a fire and fierceness that I admired.
    I am sorry I won’t be able to attend the services; but, my thoughts and prayers continue to be with Scott and the entire family and I know there are no words that can quite ease the sadness, pain and loss; but, I pray that every single tomorrow will lessen the sorrow.
    With much love, Rene’, Brandon and Jake
