I met Mr. and Mrs. Monie in 1994 and we had a special bond right away. I had moved to Farmington from Northern Illinois and did not know a single person. They took me under their wing and made me feel as though I was part of their family. I so enjoyed spending time with both of them, whether it be going to church, out to eat or just gathering with some friends at their home to play cards, etc. Mrs. Monie was one of the best examples of a Christian woman I have ever met. She was kind, loving, devoted and always ready to lend a helping hand if possible. I feel very blessed to have had her in my life. Although she is no longer here with us, her memory will live on and continue to touch so many lives. She will be truly missed by all who knew her.
