Sadly thinking of you all, I will miss Monica very much...our GTE group will not be the same without her. She's resting in peace now thankfully, after her difficult ordeal.

Jack, Monica, Janet and John,
So many memories flood back when I think of Auntie Monica. I wish I could be there this week. That picture of our Moms together as little girls, then again as older women. I can't help but think they're sitting there in that same pose now. But no, they're playing poker with the whole Flood gang :) :)
Love, Jimmy

Uncle Jack, Monica, Janet, John,
So sorry to hear about Auntie Monica. Lots of memories of her and times at your house have made me smile the last few days despite the sadness. She was a great woman. I'll never forget the two pictures of our Moms as toddlers and then as older adults. I'd like to think of them sitting together right now, but they're not alone... they're all playing poker with the Flood clan!!
