  7. I am so saddened to hear of Monica’s passing. I remember when I was a young girl, I thought Monica was the coolest person ever. She was always so beautiful and I never saw her out without her hair and makeup being just right. She was also beautiful inside. She never treated anyone mean, even the little girl that followed her around. I dont know if its possible but I believe that heaven got more beautiful when she got there. Rest peacefully Monica. You will be missed.

  14. Wow, I am so shocked to learn this. I was looking people up and found this when searching for “Moni”. I am so sorry for everyone’s loss. Monica was such a good friend to me growing up. She was the girl that every girl wanted to be; she was beautiful, popular and loved by everyone. And one of the memories I have of her growing up was that there was no girl on the entire hilltop that had more Barbies than her. *smiles* I will say a prayer for her tonight and for the family and her children. Rest in peace Moni.
