Her love and sincerity was visible with each smile, gesture and hug. Melissa leaves behind her cherished, loving Mother, Nancy Martinez, Great-aunts Leona and Pauline, many beloved family members, and her adored dogs, Pepper, Blondie and CoCo. Welcoming her at the gates of Heaven are her Great-grandfather Antonio, Grandmother Louisa and Great-Aunt Bessie.
