Very sorry for your loss. Monica was a wonderful friend and neighbor to all the families on Lawrence Avenue. She was a kind and caring mother to all the kids in the building and there were a lot. Please accept our condolences and may our prayers help comfort you. May God give her eternal rest and your family the strength to bear the great pain.

So very very sorry Margaret Patti and Suzie. you never forget the neighborhood moms growing up, your mom I will never forget when she would always come home with the bags of candy and sharing with the neighborhood kids I thought she was the coolest woman on the block. will also never forget not being able to tell which one of the twins she was, until later years, as I got older she was easy to remember Monica cuz she had unusual voice. always sweet and kind God rest her soul and a mother’s love lives on forever and firever
