  • Many, many years of my childhood Sunday nights were spent at the Foust house. Aunt Mona and mom (Marion, her sister) would cook Sunday dinners while Uncle Larry and dad would either be outside or in the living room talking. I am so sorry for your loss in the past 6mths. I know that Uncle Larry, Aunt Mona and mom are having one heck of a reunion. They all are so loved and missed dearly. I have so wonderful memories of my Aunt and Uncle. I am truly honored to be taking care of their beloves Sparky. I love you all, my cousins! Thoughts and prayers.

  • My condolences to the family, I love and miss you all, and so sorry for your loss. It was a great privelage to have spent a couple weeks of the summer with aunt Monica and uncle Larry when I was 18, and wish my children could have met them, God bless and peace to you all.

  • So many prayers and hugs to all of you.. I am so sad.. Aunt Monica was an awesome woman , and just because she loved us all, she never took no guff.. That is the one thing besides her baking and her presence in the room would light it all up.. I know she will be greatly missed, but now she is no longer in pain, she don’t have to take any more pills, and she is with family above. I know Grandma will be happy to see her.. May she rest in peace, and huggs and prayers with lots of love to all of you..
