To the Children of Melissa my heart is hurting for each of you. I wish I had the words of wisdom that I could share with each of you that would or could take away the feeling of sadness you are going though . My prayers is that Jesus will surround you with his loving arms and give you peace as only he can do. I have heard many people say how much your Mother loved each of you. I will be lifting you up in prayer today and the difficult days to come.. God Blessing upon each of you.

I have so many memories of Melissa. Sitting on my front porch watching the kids play, us tag teaming supper-meaning she would buy the stuff and I would cook it. LOL Walking up to the porch & seeing a frog, so I jumped on her back because i'm terrified of them. When my grandma passed away, she came to the nursing home and held me while I sat on the cold floor for over 2 hours waiting on the funeral home to come get her body. We went through so much together, good and bad. It makes me so very sad that she is gone.
