In memory

On July 4, it was two years since Betty Mongan of Showalter Road lost her best friend, Mike Mummert.

A poem:

"Thinking of him is easy I do it every day.

"Missing him is a heartache that will never go away


"To have him back the same old way,

"To see him smile, to sit, to talk to him awhile.

"How much I miss him will never be known."
