Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Alex and Family: We were so sorry to hear of Monde’s passing, as she had been a staple of the community my entire life. I will never forget two years ago when my mother passed away, and after the viewing we were watching an old video of my parents 1949 wedding reception. There, on the video, were both Monde and Alex, dancing up a storm, with Monde so beautiful and stylish. How she laughed when she saw herself on the video! She will be so missed, and our sincere condolences to the entire family. Sincerely, Paul and Lynn (Stylianides) Murphy
