(From Geoffrey Mohn)
My mom was very intense in her belief that we could be what ever we wanted to be. She would grip each of our faces and tell us this with such conviction. I cannot repay such faith. How could I not let her down. I am in her debt for such faith in me . I feel unworthy of such faith. I owe her vastly more than I can repay.
(From Megan Mohn Johnson)
We lost our beautiful Mother this past Saturday. She loved living in Lewisburg and loved to reminisce about our happy days there. One of our favorite stories that our Dad, Major Richard Mohn, would like to tell was about the time Mother went bowling on Fairview Road. The story goes that a group of cadets were walking off demerits in formation on Fairview Road when Mother came flying up the road (we lived on Fairview Road at the time) and the cadets went diving into the ditch! The story found its way to Dad and he loved to tease Mother about it! Mother will be dearly missed.
