"You're free from all the pain and suffering that you've carried for so long. Rest in peace, my dear friend. I'll miss you "Bunny Feet" ❤️
I met Mona 3 or 4 years ago. We became fast and good friends and always stayed in touch. I remember she had these little bunny slippers she use to wear. So I nicknamed her "Bunny Feet ".
Every time I would say that, she had the biggest smile. She was a very kind, caring person.
Every time she was sad, I would sit down with her and say Hey, Bunny Feet! Where's that pretty smile? And she would start to smile. Then we got talking and I would joke around with her. Then we both would be in hysterics.
One day someone made an off color comment to me and it really hurt my feelings. So I got up and left the meeting and went to my room. When the meeting was over, there was a knock at my door. When I opened it, there were about 7 or 8 people standing there. And Mona was right in front. She said to me, please don't be sad. Someone else's comment doesn't matter. Come out and sit with me and talk. So I did. She made me smile that day. She was a very special soul."
"Mona was one of three most caring people I've ever met. She was beautiful, inside and out. One of THE most. She was an angel when I met her and now she has her wings.
She'll be around. You learn catch a glimpse when you least expect it. A sunbeam, a bright star in the sky, a warm feeling that that you get. That's her letting you know she is there with you."

Mona, I met you when I was seventeen years old and you opened me with opened arms and a big smile, always making me feel at home in a place that wasn't home at all. It breaks my heart to hear of your passing but I hope you are at peace. I love you dearly, with all my heart. I send my best to your family. Rest easy Mona - you were one of the good ones. Ily
Esther, I don't have any pictures because we met at McClain (spelling it's been awhile). Mona accepted me with open arms. She truly changed my world in such a positive light. Unfortunately I was unable to make he funeral as I am still currently trying to finish school but my heart goes out to you and your family. Never forget how incredible she was and the kind of person you raised. I was the lucky one to have Mona in my life. Thank you. I will definitely post this evening

Mona and I shared many things, including our birthday (January 11th). Although we only spent a short time together in Boston, she made a lasting impression and I will carry her memory with me as I continue to brave this world.
My deepest condolences to her family and friends - the world has lost a truly brilliant light. I am so sorry that the system meant to help her failed so badly. I am glad to know that she is no longer suffering and has found the peace she so deserves.
Mona, thank you for being a part of my life, it would not have been the same without you in it.
