Mona Daniella's last New Year's Eve; January 1, 2016, 12:00 AM. In Elio's, the Italian restaurant in the neighborhood, whereMona had been going since she was new born. It was a family tradition to go there for dinner after watching the New Year's Eve concert in Carnegie Hall, which Mona loved. She had started that tradition.
Mona Daniella was a sensitive, gentle, kind, and caring person. She epitomized "Chessed", Loving-Kindness. She fought extremely hard. In a 2014 email I wrote to her that she was the bravest, the brightest, the most determined and the most resilient. Indeed she was. And much more.
