Monique was a free spirit who found joy in many things. She loved music and dancing, movies, capturing moments in time in photographs, sunsets, creating delicious meals for her loved ones, sports of all kinds and most of all, she loved being a mom to her boys and a memere to her grandbabies. She had a deep faith and trust in the Lord, carrying her Bible with her always; being her guide through life. She was hopeful, positive and bright. Monique had a way of making everyone she met feel deeply loved and special. She was an angel here on earth, an encourager of mankind with a kind and caring, joyful heart and soul, always ready to provide a helping hand to anyone in need. Her smile was bright and she spread joy to all those around her with her contagious laughter and twinkle in her eye. We will miss her inviting welcoming spirit, her warm loving embrace and her joyful laughter here on Earth.
