Monique, my dear friend and colleague
My memories of our time together are strong in my heart: Our shared moments, the laughter, our life discussions, Monique’s loving care for me and others, her commitment to her family, her creativity. These life experiences we shared over the years are not forgotten and made a difference to me. I will love you always. Pam
