Education Fund for Monica’s babies

Where to start and how to express our sorrow is more difficult than one could imagine. What is more difficult to imagine is our beloved friend, Monica, not being there for her precious babies, Liam (4 years) and Sofia (19 months), as they grow up and experience life’s moments, to give them that motherly hug and words of encouragement. 

For over 13 months, Monica fought hard against the ugly disease, cancer. Monica rode the rollercoaster of hope and helplessness but her faith and belief always shone through. Unfortunately on Thursday, 13th April 2017, our beloved friend, wife, mother, daughter, sister, was taken from us and became an angel and now rests in peace.

Mon believed strongly in education. She believed that regardless of how you use it, education allows you to connect with people; education will challenge you and give you opportunities for the future. We would like to honour Monica, along with her husband Patrick and their family by fulfilling her wishes and raising monies that will be put into a trust account for Liam and Sofia to cover their educational expenses. 

We thank everyone for the love and support shown to Monica’s family during this difficult time. We also appreciate your support with this campaign and encourage you to share this link and welcome any questions or comments of support for the family.

FONDO EDUCATIVO PARA LOS BEBES DE MONI: LIAM Y SOFI
Donde empezar y como expresar la pena cuando un ser querido nos deja es mucho mas dificil de lo que cualquiera pueda imaginar. Lo que es aun mas dificil es saber que nuestra querida y amada Monica no estara aqui para ver crecer a sus preciosos bebes, Liam (4 años) y Sofia (1 año y medio) ni para darles esos abrazos de mama o esas palabras de aliento para vencer cualquier dificultad.

Por cerca de 13 meses, Monica lucho contra un fuerte e invasivo cancer, siempre tan decidida  convencida de ganar que entre las muchas batallas parecia ser la vencedora final, pero desafortunadamente y como en muchos otros casos, esta fuerte enfermedad la vencio y nuestra Hermosa Moni fallecio el Jueves 13 de Abril de 2017 , ahora su alma descanza en paz y esta gozando de la presencia de nuestro Señor.

Monica creia firmemente en que la educacion si importar como fuera empleada, te permitia relacionarte mejor con los demas, traia consigo grandes desafios y asimismo abria un mundo de oportunidades para el future. Por esta y muchas otras razones quisieramos honorar nuestra preciosa amistad junto con la hermosa relacion que mantenia con su esposo Patrick y por supuesto con sus familiares; creando un fondo educativo para sus pequeños, para cubrir por lo menos una gran parte de los gastos de su educacion.

De todo corazon apreciamos de antemano todo el apoyo y amor brindado a su familia durantes estos tiempos tan dificiles. Tambien agradecemos si nos ayudan compartiendo este link.
