Mona welker was my niece ,my sisters daughter. Only 8 years between us. We just kinda grew up together as though we were sisters. Mona was even named after me n she always said I was Mona number 1 n she was Mona number 2. We always laughed about that. We've had many years of fun n laughter, especially at Hershey Park on the Roller Coaster. Good, clean, wonderful memories that I will forever cherish. I love u "Mert" my nickname to her, n I will b joining u soon if the good Lord is Willing. I will truly miss u but I am so glad u r no longer suffering. God picked a Good Person when he picked u.
