  1. Monnie was such a dear cousin. She and I were just one year different in age, and as a youth, teen, then young adult we spent many good times visiting together with our family get-to-gathers.
    It was always at Monnie’s that Ralph and I would spend ‘stay overs’ as we travelled back and forth thru Amarillo, from California to Virginia, etc. She was such a gracious hostess, and such a precious person. I know all the loved ones who have gone before her were waiting there for that blessed reunion together with our Lord Jesus as she stepped into her heavenly home.

  2. Monnie was a dear cousin of mine who loved her family and pets. We had many great visits when I would stay with her when visiting my mother in Amarillo when she was in the nursing home and Monnie cared for her, making sure she had her favorite items in her little refrigerator. She will be deeply missed and leaves a great legacy for her family which will live on in all the hearts she touched. May the wonderful memories of Monnie’s love be with her family and comfort them at this time.
