My prayers are with each of you today and days ahead. Melissa was always a joy to be around. We had great times at the gym and softball field. Cheering for our girls! She fought her battle given with dignity and pride. She was an encourager to many. Walk by faith trusting that God will supply your needs.

We are saddened to hear about Melissa. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. When we moved to Norphlet, she and Eric were the first to welcome us. The first place we went was to Moons. It was quite an experience and we loved it. She made you feel like you had known her forever. We will miss her so much.
