We all mourn in our own ways. And it's important that you always celebrate Mona's life. For she will continue to be a part of you and live in your heart, always. She was a smart cookie. I wish I could've made it to the memorial. As soon as I get my situation taken care of, I'll make it to NY to see you and a couple of other people that I chat with a lot. Mutual friends of Mona's. Really nice people. I'm looking forward to meeting them in person.

Hi, although I wish it was a different circumstance, good to see you all, the memorial was very noble and dignified, worthy of a wonderful soul that Mona was.
I read the 2 stories, really good, what a talent. thank you for sharing them. Hope to get together again soon, stay strong, Sebastian

My dearest Esther, I got your message regarding the memorial service. You are so brave to go through all this. My thoughts are with you all the time. On Yom Kippur at yischkor my prayers will also be for Mona. I hope you are still surrounded by your family, is your mother and sisters with you? I can come and be with you when they leave. Just let me know when you need me. A big hug and all my love to you, Alan and Mac.
My dear, I can feel your pain, your loss.
I wanted to be with you on the 30th but I thought you might need me after that, when family and friends won't be around. Let me know if you want that. Again I don't want to be invasive, just to be there for you when you need. Esther, life will never be the same, but you need to be strong my dear.
Christina Grey, Mona's roommate, and friend,
Agapimeni mu Esther, I hope you have people around you that can support you during this difficult time. I’m planning on coming in 3 weeks. A date hasn’t been set yet because I’m still looking for participants. I hope I can come for the memorial. My thoughts are with you Esther…
Agapimeni mu Esther, my thoughts have been with you. I wasn't able to come after all; I would have liked to be at Mona's service. If you need anything, I'm here for you...
