Our Remembrance
On November 1, 2013, my sister, Monica, lost her battle with Bipolar. She was 38 years old and left behind a wife and nine year old son. She was a Sunday school teacher and an entrepreneur. She ran a couple of businesses and one of those businesses was running a shelter/Inn for rabbits that she felt needed a place to stay when their owners went out of town, knowing that dogs and cats were cared for...but knew rabbits were not given the same consideration. She had a masters degree in English and was an amazing writer. She was diagnosed with Bipolar after having her son sit with her on the roof of her car on the side of the highway while she sang "with the angels" and was arrested and later evaluated by a psychiatrist. She was on meds for a couple of years and took herself off of her meds three months before she took her life. She lost her battle with Bipolar when she dove off of a second floor balcony.
