  1. What a nice person Monique was. I enjoyed visiting with her and her special friend when I did rounds during my tenure as Chaplain at the Manor. She's doing great now and we will see her again. - Pastor Dick

  2. You were like a candle in the wind! But now you will hear the wind, skate like a champion, and make everyone smile as you did all your life! You will be missed by all but never forgotten! Until we meet again my dear sister!
