Thoughts and Prayers to.......
I just wanted to ask all of you that have met Jay and Monica (Otis and The Bird) to please put your hands together. Jay called today to tell me Monica had passed away, due to her long fight with cancer. But with the grace of God she went in piece. Monica will be missed very much, and please Lord look upon Jay and give him streanth during these hard times.

God bless both of them,

Dave

My condolences to Jay and the rest of their family!

Re: Thoughts and Prayers to.......
Of course my prayers are with Jay and his family. Although our time on this earth is but a vapor, God is good all the time, and He works all things for good.

The LORD is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
- Psalm 23

God bless, Jay.

Thank you all. She was and still will be an inspiration to us all. We have lost a great woman but have gained from what she meant to us.

If you wish, please make a contribution to CancerSucks in memory of Monica Benedict. Thank you.

Jay,
Monica will be missed by all of us, we all truly loved her for kindness, smiles, and especially for the way she always put everyone at ease. It was a privilege to have gotten to know her in these few short years. My wife and the girls also send their love, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this most difficult time.


Very Sincerely,

Re: Thoughts and Prayers to.......
I know that Monica would've wanted me to let you all know that I am doing ok.

All I can say is 'what a woman!!' I can't even put into words how lucky I am to have her in my life. What she and I shared was priceless. Please, charish life and give your loved ones a hug for her.

Thank you all for your support. You don't know how much it means to our entire family. Trust me, we all have read everything that has been posted on all the forums. We are all truley blessed to have such wonderful people help us at this difficult time.

Thank you so much.

Jay and Dave,

I have been so busy with my chef business I only noticed this post this morning. I express my sorrow for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are also with you. Jay, I also want you to know how much I appreciate the kindness and goodwill that you and Monica brought to the competitions our team participated in. You together were a CLASS ACT. Hope to see you all again down the road. Take Care.
