  1. You will be deeply missed. Remember all the great times we had when Nancy and you and I run around together. Scott our thoughts go with you . Blessing

  2. My deepest sympathy. May the choir of angels welcome you. Where Lazarus is poor no longer, may you have eternal rest.

  3. Mona, I was so surprized to see your notice in the paper. Many years have gone by since we worked together in the “horsepits” (hospital in Walsenburg). Your were among my first friends when I arrived and you along with our other work pals spent many a pleasent hour “out and about”. I remember you dancing to cumbias while still in your seat like it was just last weekend, I fondly remember your younger brothers as the “Buster Brown Boys” and your mom’s smile. I know you are going to be missed because you truely were a good person. Even though its been years since I left the horsepits and since I’ve seen or spoken to you I’ve never forgotten your friendship and spunk. I can only say now that I truely count you among the angles that God sent from heaven to make a stranger in a new town at a new job feel welcomed and that she had found a second home. May God lead you to your rest and may His perpetual light shine apon you so that your rest in peace. I pray for your family and loved ones, that God strenghten them and comfort them and fill their memories with peace and love at the thought of you.
    Always Louise

  4. Thank for the time we spent working together. Working with you always meant a learning experience and a good belly laugh.
