Steph Monogue, who works in St. Thomas' Human Resources Department, sent the following note of thanks to the university community:
"Our family is very appreciative of all your thoughts, prayers, cards, contributions and outpouring of support over the past few weeks.
"Our son and brother, Mark, took his life while in the depths of depression for reasons we don’t know or understand. He was making determined efforts to work through his depression with professional guidance and medication.
"We take consolation in believing Mark is now at peace.
"Our family would appreciate your continued prayers and support through the days and weeks ahead.
"Our deepest appreciation,
The Steph Monogue family"
