Sorry for your loss, James remembers Monika in Mt. Hope with her sister Diane and the many hours of card playing. Monika always had a smile and upbeat personality.

So sorry to hear about Monika. She played badminton with us for years. I remember her as being very upbeat and smiling. Always talking about her kids and husband.

Monika you were such a great friend for almost 50 years. Although the miles separated us, we never missed a Birthday or Christmas phone call. You have raised two lovely girls, and have been successful in life. We had so much fun playing Yahtzee, cribbage and euchre in our younger years. I still laugh at how we made little pit marks all over our dining table from throwing the dice for so many years. My heart breaks for the pain and suffering you went through, but it rejoices now to know you are resting peacefully. My sincere condolences go to Rich, Christel, Laura, Dianne and the rest of your family. Rest In Peace my friend....until we meet again. ❤️❤️

Monika and I go way back to our baseball playing days. Wow that was a long time ago. One thing about Monika I will always remember was her happy voice and at times we might not see each other for many years but it would be like we had just seen each other the day before. I would see her at the airport and one time I even went there just to catch up with her while she was working. My condolences to you Rich and to the girls and of course to Diane.

You are my rock.
You are my safe place.
You are my influence and teacher.
You are my hangout pal in laughter and in silence.
You are my comfort and support.
You are my everything.
I love you with every fiber of my soul.
Rest easy now.

My dearest friend
I will definitely cherish the years we spent together as friends. Everyone of us were so lucky to have a friend as loving and thoughtful as you were. You always found the best in people no matter what they said or done. I will definitely miss our breakfast and lunch dates every week and my Monday visits at the hospital. May you RIP my dear friend until we meet again. Love you and miss you dearly 💞💞💞💞💞💞💞
