May you find peace in knowing God is a comforter. Monica was impressionable to all who knew her. She was a model of a person even as a young student. Family, we know you miss her and wish you had more time with her. There's never a right time for love ones to depart from us. Our hearts grieve with you this day. Our prayers is that you continue to hold on to God's hand and continue to live out sister Monica's prayers for your faith, family and community.

Monica was such a beautiful person inside and out. I remember us working in ministry together, and I loved her spirit, and her determination to go forth in ministry with a spirit of excellence.
