Scared Monkeys Says Good Bye to One of Their Own … 2NJSONS_MOM Passed Away, To Our Friend, Rest in Peace


In Loving Memory of 2NJSons_Mom …

Loss is always difficult and saying goodbye is especially hard when it is one of your own.

Sadly, we learned over the weekend that 2NJSons_Mom, a long time beloved Scared Monkey and moderator had passed away. The shock of the news was only outdone by the tears. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of 2NJSons_Mom as we all at Scared Monkeys deal with her loss. As news spread of her passing, Scared Monkeys members expressed their sorrow, tears, condolences and prayers for 2NJSons_Mom and her family.

I’m so sorry to let you know mom passed this afternoon. She was up and alert this morning ready to start cancer treatment next week. Something with her heart gave out this morning and she went into cardiac arrest and was put on life support. We waited until all family was there to later take her off.

While I’m truly saddened to pass this news, I want to express our gratitude for your little community that she was so into and enjoyed being part of. Thank you also for all the well wishes along the way. She’s at peace now after a rough few weeks.

2NJ’s Son


Scared Monkeys would like to thank the family of 2NJSons_Mom for sharing her with us. She was a special person who touched many lives.  You touched so many of us with your character and just being you. The pain of letting you go is only comforted by knowing that Heaven just became a better place and that you are no longer in pain and in eternal peace with The Father.

Dear Father,

As we let go of 2NJ’s hand, we know that You hold her and that You will never let go. Thank You for the gift You gave us in 2NJ. You gave me a family when I was devastated without mine and 2NJ was a dear member and close to my heart. Thank You for 2NJ’s character, humor, strength, and caring nature. The world is changed because she walked within it, and her footsteps created paths and inroads for many that we will take everytime we remember 2NJ. I will remember 2NJ …

Read the many tributes prayers and condolences for 2NJSons_Mom from those that knew her at SM.  Special comments for a special person.

      I was not fortunate enough to have “met” her, but Klaasend and Red speak very highly of her.

      And she is of course from Jersey, which means she must have been a Jets fan :)

      What a lovely Memorial for my Monkey sister, thank you for sharing this Red and Klassend.

      My thoughts and prayers are with 2NJ’s family and friends.

      Your presence and dedication to Scared Monkeys will be missed. On a personal note I will always remember your friendship and support. You always seemed to get my sarcastic one liners (it must have been an Italian thing). Thank you for your kindness. Rest in peace my friend.
