Betty and Family,
Please know the children of Lloyd and Maggie Monds, extend our sincerest condolences. May God give you peace that surpasses all understanding.

I want you to always know how much we love you all, and our heart aches with you. Our friendship of 50 years has been awesome. We have had so much fun and laughter on our excursions. Grover was so funny at times and most of all his laughter at his own jokes. He laughed so hard that it was right from the bottom of his gut. We so truly loved him. Pete just said to remind you they were brothers from another mother. When these two got together, you and I had our hands full. Our campground pajama party and dance, our trip to Atlantic city, Amish country, Myrtle Beach. Oh the memories make me smile.
Know that God feels your pain and HE is with you always. Now it is Grover's time to go rest high upon the mountain and sing and dance with the angels. He will walk slow because one day you will follow and be with him forever, to never be separated again.
We love you and will be here for you, you have my shoulder any time you need it. We love you, God's Blessings to you, Charlotte and Pete.
