6 Tributes for “Mona Lou Willis (Vizineau)

    While growing up the Willis house was my second home. So many fond memories with their family. I can’t express the amount of sypothy I feel for her entire family. She has always been a wonderful woman and human being. After growing up and becoming an adult, I didn’t have any reason to drive down the street where Mona and her family lives. But anytime I was down that way and weather was nice I would, just to see if I catch Mona sitting on her porch ( which she loved to do).

    Mona,
    Please know that I was never just passing through when I would stop and visit you and Robert. Your home was always my destination. Rest In Peace Mona. You will be missed.

    You have my deepest condolances for the passing of Mona. I have known the Vizeneau family for many years. I am truly sorry for your loss..
    sincerely , JoAnna Viau Higgerson
