What a joy to know and work with Mona years ago at Riverside Market. We all were like family and shared our dreams and hopes for our future, loves and families. We had fun and lots of laughs and great memories. She fought the good fight and now is at peace and rest like a light shinning for all to see that you can be a "overcommer" and give love, hope and peace to others even when you are hurting yourself. God bless and comfort her family and friends and prayers. Sincerely with love for her, Norma Aveni

I had the honor to meet and spend some time with Mona only once, but in that one meeting she touched my heart with her kindness. I will always be grateful for the time I got to spend with her. Thank you, to her niece Karen and her wife for welcoming me into their home and having the opportunity to meet such a lovely , appreciative, beautiful soul.
