My sincere condolences to Cody and the entire family. I met Monica and Cody in high school and knew right away what a sweet, kind person she was. I have very fond memories of Monica dancing, laughing and having fun; she was always smiling. I pray that she is resting in peace and is in the arms of her Lord and Savior.

It’s been a while since I saw Monica and Cody- she and Our friendship started during the Jr College years. Lots of wonderful memories and time spent visiting with her and Cody at Livestock Shows. She was always so proud of her kids and how they were doing.
My prayers are with the family. I know that her life was definitely one of full time love and kindness being given to all that knew her!

I worked with Monica for several years at VWHS. I visited her classroom once a week to provide therapy for her students. She was truly one of the best classroom aids I’ve ever met. It wasn’t an easy job. Many of her students required a great deal of physical assistance for mobility and personal care. These were teenagers who were often larger and heavier than her. Everything she did was with love and compassion. As an outsider walking into a classroom, she always greeted me as if I belonged. That’s what she did. She brought you in and made you one of her own. May god stretch out His arms to her and bring her into His heavenly home. I have no doubt. Prayers to those she loved the most during this difficult time.
