Mona and Rick moved to the Franklin area when they were 10 & 12 and Mona and Lynnie became instant best friends! Mona called the shots with RIck and told him to stay away from my friend! Fast forward 53 years later, Rick invited Lynnie to his grandson's MHS basketball game. Their love story began that night and the rest is history! Thank you, Brody
