    Mona was such a special friend when we attended Charleston Baptist Church. We were members of the choir, and we rode together to choir practices. That is how my husband and I got to know her. She loved her savior, and she loved to sing. We had not seen her for many years, but she always held a special place in our hearts. She loved and encouraged us so many times. She always had a beautiful smile. Our condolences and prayers go to her family at this time.
