Mona and I worked together at Kmart in the pharmacy. In the pharmacy and in the store we were all family! In the pharmacy we would have fun and Mona made it that way a lot! I remember Rudy always said that the printers sang when they were printing and he would make the mistake of saying...I don't hear any singing so Mona and I would sing... literally!! One of us would start a song and the other would join in!!! It took a few times but he finally stopped saying that LOL!!!
Another time, Mona had to have surgery and she called me one night before we closed for the night and said that she was bored and could I pick her up some puzzle books, etc. She then told me that if anyone stopped me coming into the hospital (it would be after visiting hours) the nurse said for me to say I was visiting my sister! I got up there and the Dr I ran into asked me what I was doing up there! It was Dr John Barber..... a man I grew up with and we considered ourselves cousins since we called each other's mom's...Aunt!!! I looked him in the eye and told him that I was visiting my sister Ramona Castillo...lol...I actually have no sisters just two older brothers!!! He just looked at me and said really!!! Yep, so he said to tell her hi!!! The look he gave me!!!! Mona said that was her doctor and I told her the story and she laughed till she cried!!!
So many fun memories we had!!
Mona, I still can't believe that you're gone and I know that so many are missing you!!!
Love ya still, Lisa Folger Imhoff

We already miss you, more than can be fully expressed through words. I am gonna try though, I know I won’t say anything Sara, Aj, Erica, Lupe, Or the babies haven’t been whispering.
You’ll always be my other mom, thank you for everything you did for me. Even more so all the things you let me get away with always treating me like your daughter. When I was at my low points, you let me cry to you, a lot. Then would remind me that I am strong and could overcome it. Even when I was ashamed, you wouldn’t let me get down, then remind me you couldn’t give Sara any messages for me, building rule, Give me a big hug and tell me it’ll be ok and say something silly so I’d start laughing
You and Lupe helped raise me, I was only an adult in age when we first met, I know you knew though and accepted me. Y’all set a goal for what love should look like, sound like, and the sweet things said 45 years later. I wish I woulda told you all the time Lupe told me how beautiful you are, how much he loves you, and all those things that you already knew but I know it woulda been worth repeating for the smile.
Thank you for my best friend. Sara an old soul, I’d say I’ll take care of her, but you know she takes care of everyone else than does her. I will try. all the times watching tv in bed, feeding me, saying “well that’s y’alls tv, I don’t care” and meaning it. While always making room, time for me no matter how ill prepared I was and my expanding family, I cherish each memory.
Daisy knows your picture and that you are abuela. We still have big plans and I know you’ll be there for all of them. I’m already excited to hear Lupe tell Daisy stories about y’all. Maybe I can even get him to teach her Spanish so one of your kids knows it, maybe, be in his dreams about it till I can ask him in person. I know this is long, but I also know your heaven has super high speed Internet, the best streaming services for shows and has y’alls relaxation music and the most comfy seats.
