Terrible Tragedy ... Oct 5, 2002

I personally didn\'t get to know Monika, but I noticed one or two of her answers in the community...

I have just taken a look at her profile, and it appears that she always had a \"Greeting\" for fellow colleagues and Proz members. Monika may not have been in the community long, but it appears that she had a lasting effect upon many. Having seen the ebulliently professional, though informal, manner in which she communicated with others, this isn\'t surprising at all.

I wasn\'t as lucky as some of the other members, in receiving a \'greeting\' from Monika, but I shall send one to you, Marc, with my sincere and heartfelt condolences.

While I light a candle for her this coming week, could you perhaps send her a \'greeting\' from me..? Thank you.



As one member has already said - even though many rely (wholly or partly) on our skills through words, meanings, communication, for our livelihoods - it\'s amazing to see how difficult it is to find the appropriate words/sentiments for such a tragedy. To one so young and full of promise, as well.



I hope that you may continue to smile as she did here...



My deepest sympathies,

My sincerest condolences Oct 5, 2002

to Monika\'s husband, family and friends. The only contact I ever had with her was when she sent me an e-mail, a few months ago, to ask me how to get her picture on her profile page. The Proz main page reminds me of that e-mail every day.

She seemed nice and kind. It was too soon for her (or for anyone at that age) to go. May she rest in peace...

To an angel in heaven, and to her family Oct 5, 2002

Don´t cry if you love me.



If you knew the gift of God

and what Heaven is.

If you could hear the angels singing

and see me among them...

If, only for an instant, you could contemplate,

just like me,

the Beauty before which all beauties turn pale.

Trust me.

When the day, which god has stated and knows, arrives

and what Heaven is.

If you could hear the angels singing

and see me among them...

If, only for an instant, you could contemplate,

just like me,

the Beauty before which all beauties turn pale.

Trust me.

When the day, which god has stated and knows, arrives

and your soul, which has been preceded by mine,

enters this Heaven,

That day you will see me again,

you will feel that I still love you,

that I have always loved you

and you will find my heart

with all its love purified.



You will see me in transfiguration,

in an ecstasy of happiness.

No longer waiting for death,

but walking with you

and holding your hand along new paths of light and life.



So, wipe your tears away

and don´t cry, if you love me...

Mes plus sincères condoléances... Oct 5, 2002

Pour Monika, son époux, ses proches et tous ses amis..



Une simple phrase de Gustave Flaubert et toute ma sympathie...

Il y a toujours après la mort de quelqu\'un, comme une stupéfaction qui se dégage, tant il est difficile de comprendre cette survenue du néant et de s\'y résigner à y croire.



Tendres Amitiés

\"Cuando al quererlo la suerte

se mezclan a nuestras vidas,

de la ausencia o de la muerte,

las penas desconocidas,



y, envueltos en el misterio

van, con rapidez que asombra,

amigos al cementerio,

ilusiones a la sombra,



la intensa voz de ternura

que vibra en el alma amante

como entre la noche oscura

una campana distante,



saca recuerdos perdidos

de angustias y desengaños

que tienen ocultos nidos

en las ruinas de los años,



y que al cruzar aleteando

por el espacio sombrío

van en el ser derramando

sueños de angustia y de frío



hasta que alguna lejana,

idea consoladora,

que irradia en el alma humana

como con lumbre de aurora,



en su lenguaje difuso

entabla con nuestros duelos

el gran dialogo confuso

de las tumbas y los cielos\"

Very sad and my sincerest condolences Oct 5, 2002

I and Ms. Monika Martens never communicated but I knew of her presence. And my impression of her was that of a thorough professional. May her soul rest in peace and may her family find strength in the fact that Monika herself would want them to get along with life.



Amen.

thoughts with Monica's family Oct 6, 2002

Monica sent me an email on 2 September and to ask me if I wanted to join a project as a proofreader. I replied. I have seen her responses many times on the Kudoz question board and now I read of her tragic accident.



My thoughts are with her family. I wish them strenghts and love to get out of the tunnel of grief. Monica seemed like a beautiful person, a competent professional with a gentle beautiful sould who also touched my life.

Far too young, Monika... Oct 6, 2002

...were you taken from this world. Though I know that any of us has to go this way at some point in time, I am still severely shocked by this incredibly sad news.



Although I never had personal contact with Monika, I did notice her valuable contributions as a member of our community, namely in the KudoZ sections English-German/German-English.



Please convey my sincerest condolences to her husband Marc and her family. May you rest in peace, Monika!
