Condolencs Oct 4, 2002

We heard of the sad news of the passwing away of Monika due to a terrible car accident, through Proz. On behalf of all Arabic Translators, I extend my heartfelt condolences to her husband and family. At a time such as this, it seems vain to try to express your feelings, but please count us among those who share your sorrows.



In Deepest sympathy,



Sam Ragab

Such a loss! Oct 4, 2002

May God rest Monika\'s soul in peace. May God give strength to her husband and all the beloved ones. We all have become poorer without one of us...

she just celebrated her 30th birthday... Oct 4, 2002

I did not know Monika, nor have I seen her profile before. Now I checked out her CV on her profile and I could see that she just celebrated her 30th birhtday, only 5 days before she passed away... And she was born exactly on the same day as my sister, which brings this tradegy closer to me.

My condolences to Monika's family Oct 4, 2002

I have never had any direct contact with her, but I have nevertheless enjoyed reading her messages and her interventions, which have demonstrated to everybody what a special person she was; it is sad to realize it when she is no more with us. As I have heard in an English church: do not cry because she is dead, but smile because she has lived. Hear death is a tragic loss and we can only hope that the participation of all her friends, with thoughts and prayers, might help her family to fill a lit... See more

No words for this Oct 4, 2002

We deal in words as translators, but they seem so inadequate at times like these.

My heart goes out to Monica\'s husband, family and all who knew her.

Farewell and RIP Monika Oct 4, 2002

It is with sadness and shock that I have learnt of the death of Monika Martens, who, at 30, was the same age as me (but three months younger).



I did not know Monika very well, but she did answer a few of my KudoZ questions (and I gave her points on at least one, possibly two occasions). She also agreed with some of my answers (in fact I don\'t remember a single \"disagree\" from her, though I am sure she would have disagreed in good spirit). I can also remember reading some

I did not know Monika very well, but she did answer a few of my KudoZ questions (and I gave her points on at least one, possibly two occasions). She also agreed with some of my answers (in fact I don\'t remember a single \"disagree\" from her, though I am sure she would have disagreed in good spirit). I can also remember reading some of her forum postings. She seemed like a friendly and outgoing person, and her death must be a tremendous loss for her husband and family.



It is a loss for ProZ as well, and for the whole translation community throughout the world. So I send my thoughts and prayers to Monika\'s husband and family at this time, and close with a \"translator\'s farewell\" (goodbye in several languages):



Goodbye, adieu, adiós, lebe wohl, farvel, arrivederci, e noho ra and ... mirupafshim. (I believe the latter is Albanian for goodbye, and Monika was Albanian. E noho ra is Maori, New Zealand\'s other official language. You can probably work the rest out.)



Mirupafshim, Monika. You will be missed. To Monika\'s husband and family, I give this Maori exhortation: kia kaha - be strong. And may God Bless and be with you during this very sad time.



Best Regards



ROWAN MORRELL

Condolences Oct 4, 2002

Please convey my condolences to Monika Marten\'s husband and loved ones. Theirs is a very tragic loss.



Like many others here, I did not know Monika and have only learned about her since her tragic death, but I would like to thank both ProZ and Monika Coulson for informing us and passing on our messages of sympathy. This may be a virtual community but there are very real people behind the profiles.
