  1. Very saddened to hear about Mona's passing. It's been a few years since I have seen her but have good memories of her and the whole family. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family .

  3. Lance, she was always so excited & very proud to go watch you at the Hackberry High School rodeo! You will always have a special angel 😇 watching over you….Ms. Jo, you will also have one too…You are one of a kind & I know Ms. Mona was truly blessed to have you in her life! Prayers & love to all…. Rest In Peace Ms. Mona…..

  4. I just saw Mona’s obituary. My heart and prayers are with you all. She’s no longer suffering. I hate that we missed her service. God bless you girls and may He comfort you always.

  5. I met Mona at McNeese my freshman semester. She was my best friend, co-conspirator & partner in crime. We didn’t see each other much in the past years, though she was on my mind often. I have so many great memories that put a smile on my face. Thank goodness there weren’t any phones with cameras during those times. Lol! And I know Mona felt the same way. She was the most talented artist I knew. I loved and collected elephants so she painted one on a huge canvas for me. It survived Rita and Ike. Unfortunately, it was lost in Laura. Even though it’s not here, I can see Mona with it and helping me hang it up in my home. She was a great friend. At first, i thought she was shy & quiet, then bang, the real Mona came out.  One thing you never wanted to do was dare her to do something or tell her she couldn’t do it. She would do whatever it was just to prove she could. I’m so sorry I didn’t know of her passing right away so that I could attend her service. The world has lost a kind, generous, caring and  fun person. I will never forget her. Heaven has a new Guardian Angel to watch over her family and friends. P

  6. I was so saddened to hear of Mona's passing. My family, Pete, Tessa, and Chrysta were neighbors next to her mother for years. We were so fortunate to know Mrs. Arceneaux, who taught me to can figs, and make Christmas decorations with the scraps we had accumulated. I remember Mr. Arceneaux cutting and edging the grass on the neutral ground of our lawn every time he cut his grass. Through them, we got to know the rest of the family, Mona, Robert, and Pat since Tanya was 4yrs old. Mrs. Arceneaux, Mona and her grandmother, Mrs. McCall, had so many stories to share in the evenings mostly around the old kitchen table in the Arceneaux home. The one memory I had about Mona is when I invited her to go with me somewhere. We took my husband's prized, soft-top jeep he cared about so much. It was hot and humid and Pete just so happened to have the top down. As we were cruising Ryan Street, there came from nowhere a big cloud burst. I had no idea how to put the top on so we drove through the rain. We were laughing so hard. We laughed harder when Mona noticed that I had the wind shield wipers going as if it was going help. At the signal lights when we had to stop, people were looking like we were high because we kept on laughing all along I was saying, "Pete is going to kill me" seeing all the inside of his beloved jeep so wet.
