An excerpt from an email from Dr. Owen Muir, of Brooklyn Minds, BklynMinds husband and partner of Dr. Carlene MacMillan:
"Loving Mona was often like washing the dead...and yet those who do thankless things often are the most blessed, as I was watching Mona smile, succeed, and love...and eventually a witness to her burial."
We are trying to understand: Did Dr. Owen Muir consider himself blessed for witnessing Mona's burial? And loving Mona was like washing the dead? Anyone we have shown his email has told us this is so creepy.
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.
