Dave and Sandy Monnin

Dear O'Leary Family, Our deepest sympathy goes out to you at this time. Your Mother was a senior in high school when I was a freshman. She was my mentor and guide when I became a cheerleader. She was so kind and always made me feel comfortable when I was such a "greenhorn". I will never forget her kindnesses to me. She left behind a wonderful and caring family to mourn her loss. Sincerely, Sandy and Dave Monnin
