My goodness. I still can't believe you're gone. Loved seeing you smile and hearing your laugh. Too big of a hole is still in many lives without you. Of course, knowing you're somewhere better now helps. No pain or strife anymore, thank God. Dear times are still remembered and always will be. I promise you that! Don't think anyone will ever forget you. It's doubtful to say the least. Thank you for being a light in a dark world. <3

Monique was a sweet loving mother, daughter and friend. I only knew her as a neighbor for a few years, but the time we spent with her was special and she was beautiful and always gracious. She will be missed and those boys will miss a beautiful mother. Alicia & Bobby Brown

Monique was a cherished friend, and I will forever miss her. A woman with an undeniable light, a spirit, sense of humor, and personality that invigorated others. You couldn't be around Monique long without loving who she was, and if you had the privilege of knowing her, then you had a selfless and beautiful friend. Words cannot express how much I hurt for her two young sons, her grieving family and friends. As beautiful as she was inside and out, I know she is more beautiful now that she's immersed in God's glory.

Mr. & Mrs. Williams, I am heartbroken at the passing of Monique. She was such a beautiful person inside and out. I remember her beautiful smile and infectious personality while were growing up in church. Her smile made me smile. She was always so sweet and down to earth and when she came back to visit she was that same beautiful person. I've been praying for you guys and her sons since I first heard and I will continue to do so. God Bless.

Leaving my friends behind at my school in Rittman to attend Our Lady of The Elms for high school was daunting for me. I remember my first day being scared, nervous and feeling alone. I then met Monique. She immediately made me feel at ease and took me under her wing. We became quick friends and spent a lot of our time at The Elms together. For four years we had more laughs and good times that to this day I still think about. She was always smiling. Always laughing. A genuinely good person. I was so saddened to hear of her passing. My thoughts are with her parents, sons and family. Find comfort in knowing she is still with you in spirit and constantly watching over you all. God received a very special gift the day Monique entered into His Kingdom.

My deepest sympathy to all the members of Monique's family.

My prayer for you is to ask the True God to comfort you with the strength and courage to bear the sorrow you all feel. Only time can ease all your pain and it's good to focus on the good and loving memories of Monique. This will help you get through your daily life. God is for you a refuge and strength, a help that is there to be found during difficult times. May God provide you with peace and comfort at this time.

Mr. and Mrs. Williams and the boys, there are not enough words to express the grief felt losing Monique. I will continue to pray for all of you in this very difficult time. I remember 1999 meeting Monique and that infectious smile of hers. 14 years later we would talk about college days and how funny it was we are all mothers now...long way from our DePaul days. We created memorable moments together. She will truly be missed but never forgotten.

Mr. and Mrs. Roger Williams,
My heart goes out to you during this time of sorrow. Upon meeting Monique, I was immediately taken with her outer beauty. It did not take long for me to realize that she was just as beautiful on the inside. She loved people and would do anything for anybody. I feel truly blessed that our paths crossed and we became friends. I will always remember her warmth and kindness. I would like to offer you peace, blessings and prayers.
