Tribute to Sonny

A few weeks ago after starting this blog,I was contacted by Deborah Monosson telling me that her family was going on a hike in new Hampshire as a tribute to Sonny Monosson,her father who passed away three years ago in October. It was a family tradition to go hiking in NH and the family is carrying on the tradition with the next generation. She asked to post a family picture and of course I would love to! What a winderful tribute to keep his memory alive! Sonny and Gloria's beautiful family.

That's a beautiful picture and a wonderful way to remember Sonny.

Carol, thank you for setting up this blog. It's a great idea.

I am Zoe Monosson, who lives in The United States of America. I am the great great granddaughter of David Monosson. Rachel Goldstein has a daughter named Zoe who is Fred's great great granddaughter. Which means there are two Zoes who are great great granddaughters of Fred and David Monosson. Is that funny? To make things even funnier, my sister is named Rachel. The Monosson's like the name Zoe and Rachel I guess
