Monika I was extremely saddened to learn of your father's passing this morning. When I met you guys at Tiffany''s graduation he and you both were like a breath of fresh air, like we had always known each other. He definitely fought a great fight. Praying for you in days to come.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Watkins several times, and working side-by-side with his wonderful daughter, Monika. He was as proud of her as she was of him, and seeing the strength of their loving relationship was amazing. My condolences and prayers to the whole family.
