To Monica’s family, so sorry to hear of Monica’s passing. May the happy, cherished memories help you through the saddest of times. I used to stop and meet her for coffee when I was in Winsted, and it was always fun to visit with her and Norbert when I was married to David. She was one of the happiest people ever!!!
