Good Afternoon Esther,
Please accept our deepest condolences on your loss of Mona. We cannot imagine the depths of your grief, especially with the recent passing of her birthday in January.
Our staff feels very privileged to have gotten to know Mona over the summer at Felicity House. While we only knew her for a few months, we had the opportunity to see her light up when she talked about legos and watch her create beautiful, thoughtful artwork. One project she worked on at Felicity House was a volunteer service project for an elementary school in Harlem. We created “welcome back” posters for teachers to display in their classrooms for when children returned to school in the fall. Mona’s poster was beautiful, creative and incorporated different languages to make all the children feel welcome and included.
Again, we are so deeply sorry for your loss and hope this memory brings you a little light.
All the best,
Felicity House Staff
