My deepest prayers and condolences to the Monticello family in the loss of a daughter and sister who knew she was loved by her family and knew she had a mission to be the Heart of Jesus to all wherever she served. She was my friend for many decades of life and had an unshakeable trust and belief in God’s Plan. May she receive her reward of eternal life and know she will be missed forever.

Worked with Sister when I was a Hospice Volunteer ..knee Mercy House would be the perfect fit for her. Will be hard to replace-or not ever be able to replace. Sorry for the family...
