My deepest sympathy to Malissie Shaw’s family. She will be missed. I knew her as a compassionate woman and a member of the NACWC. She cherished her involvement and was committed in making a positive difference. Malissie deeply loved the Lord and truly adored her family.

I thank God I had the opportunity to know her.

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Malissie. She was such a wonderful lady. I met her many years ago at the Texas Association of Women Club meetings and looked forward to seeing her and sharing many laughs. She will be greatly missed. I am praying for the family and friends.
