So sorry to hear of Mona's passing. I worked with her for many years and we shared a passion for hummingbirds. She always tried to slip one out of my office when she left. She will be missed. Praying for you all.

Orin and family,

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mona. I remember you well from your time at Aveleigh Pres. back in the 1980's. My mother, Mary Wright Halfacre, thought so much of you Orin and Mona. May the Lord lift you up and console you during this time. Mona is with the angels now.
