I never met Monika Martens personally, but it did not take us long to become best friends here at ProZ. I was impressed not only with her talents that she shared with us, but above all, with her kindness and love to learn from her ProZ fellows and her love to love and respect everybody. Within such a short time she taught me a lot about these things.



I was in shock and grief yesterday when I heard about the car accident that took her life in such a brutal way.



Our proZ community will miss her. The Albanian community will especially miss her enthusiasm and smile. This is her profile for those who did not know her: http://www.proz.com/pro/38602



This loss has effected directly not only her family, but also our translators\' family.



Even though I never met her in this life, she has touched my life and many others in a very special way.



Our prayers are with her husband and her family.



Some update (Friday, October 4, 2002)



I just spoke to Marc Martens, Monika’s husband and wanted to tell you how much he is missing her. He was in tears, but managed to tell me that Monika was an angel all her life and he believes that God is taking good care of her now. He said that he knows that Monika had a mission in this life, and that her mission was completed and he feels that it was her time to go up and that he should not have prevented her from going to Heaven.



Just before the accident Monika was going to a dentist appointment and her car rolled over on a bridge. After the accident she was conscious, she was talking with her family members, telling them that she could not believe what had just happened to her and she did not have any bruises at all. Then she was taken to a hospital, where they realized that she had some severe internal bleeding. Her lungs soon started to fill with blood and this caused the tragic loss.



Her funeral will be this coming Tuesday at 10:00 am (Latvia time), 3:00 am EST (USA) 6:00 am PST (USA) and Marc has kindly asked to either say a little prayer for Monika on that day, or light a candle for her. He is so grateful for all of the friends who have expressed their sympathy to him and to their family. Monika and Marc have been married for seven years and did not have any children. Marc said that these seven years have been the best seven years of his life. He said that he knows that she is in a better place now, continuing another mission there.

More update from Marc:

The Funeral Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, 08 of October 2002. This Ceremony shall be held at St.Jekab Cathedral (Sveta Jekaba Katedrale, behind the parliament in old city) at 10.00 a.m.

Condolences Oct 3, 2002

I did not know Monika at all, but the translating community is like a family. May God bless and comfort her family in this tragic time of grief. May her family rest assured that she is in a better place than we and that they now have a very special guardian angel to watch over and protect them. Thank you to Proz for providing a way to share thoughts and feelings and to Monika for gracing this world with her sweet spirit, if even for just a short while. Thank you also to Monika C. for posting this forum. God bless.

a tragic loss for our community (Goodbye Monica) Oct 3, 2002

I\'m shocked! I\'ve just read the tragic piece of news and there\'re very few words left to say... they all seem so fragile like our life.

Monica did agree and disagree with my kudoz answer a few times and she shared her experience with me, and with all of us. We\'ll always be thankful to her for that... judging from her answers she seemed to be a very nice person... my condoleces to her husband and family.



Goodbye dear Monica,



Lucia

My sincerest condolences to Monika\'s family and friends.



This is really shocking news. When you read something like this, you realize once again that life is precious and that it can be taken away at any time without any warning.



I hope Monika\'s family and friends find strenght in our contributions to deal with their loss.

My thoughts are with you.

I'm really sorry to see her go Oct 3, 2002

Not that I knew her. But that it happens to a good professional, young, with a lot of promise, always shocks colleagues, what more pain would it cause the family? My condolences for all of them.

I will miss her Oct 3, 2002

My prayers and condolences to Monika\'s family.



All I know about Monika is what I\'ve seen on a few postings where our paths incidentally crossed, but i liked her style and her smile right away. In a sense she became part of my life, a presence, a face to say hi to...



I know I will keep long memories of this bright colleague of ours whose death, in a strange way, makes this proZ place feel much more human and personal environment. She was one of us.
