Krista Ehrlinger, Mona's friend
"I'm at a loss of words, my heart stopped when I realized you were gone Mona. You were such a beautiful person inside and out. I miss you and I'll always remember how kind and amazing you were. I know you were sad and I hope you are at peace now. I love you."
"... I saw how much pain she was in."
"She was a very kind, caring person. I've met a few of Mona's friends on Facebook last week. We were all trying to figure out what happened. I've become very close to one girl in particular. She said she would be happy to meet me at the train station and help me navigate around the city. I've actually never been to NYC. I used to have a summer home way up in Severance. Right on the river, close to Schroon Lake. But that's way up in the country. I live in Easton, MA. So I'm not sure what the closest Amtrak stop would be. Probably south station in Boston. I'll have to look it up and see."
Lauren Principessa, Mona's friend
"I love you."
"Thank you so much, Mac. I am thinking of you and your family during this difficult time. -Lauren"
Mac Robert Haddad, Mona's brother
Mona loved summer. She loved the beach. It was her happiest time of the year. Please remember her as the gentle, caring, kind, and beautiful person that she was. She loved her family and friends, she cared for each and everyone; she gave each person so much attention that the person felt unique. She will forever be in our hearts. I hope Mona Daniella has found peace. ❤️
