Even if you had lived to be 150, it NEVER would have been enough time. I will miss having lunch with you, reading your letters, hearing your voice and listening to your stories. But mostly...I will miss you. When you see our Shirley and Daddy, please tell them that life simply isn't the same here without them...it just isn't. Mona, I am so sorry.
