Melissa, I so enjoyed having you with Katie with the rest of us when we spent that long, hot day up in Flint delivering water. You made the day fun and go much faster! I was impressed that someone that was NOT taking our class was willing to give up a hot Saturday to hand out water to those less fortunate that had no care to go pick up the cases. The love between you and Katie was so obvious and it was fun to be with you guys! It's as if I am depressed because the world lost one fun, happy and spunky person. But I know, believe me I know, none of us know what is really going on in someone else's mind. Hugs to Katie!
