The day I met you Melissa I called you my beautiful butterfly.
Your mesmerizing eyes and all your beauty opened up the true magical , instant connection I always Long to feel about what a Tia feels like - since ur mom was such a beautiful Aunt to me I had the urge to connect the same way.
I simply fell in love with you and your sisters. Tres princesitas but rather quickly I learned WHO was the Queen. Queen Melissa ! We had a tea party and you came in with your Royal court using a beautiful English accent. My heart grew and grew enjoying every little second watching you. It’s really hard for me to be here writing a bit about you my beautiful butterfly. It’s impossible to describe the impact of having you for a very little time. For God is my witness you never left my heart and I will forever have you near and dear to my soul.
My heart and soul are mourning your farewell.
Godspeed Melissa ! Fly be free mi amorcito! I will think of you every time I feel the wind. Every evening when the sunsets. You will always be here! I love you always and I can’t and refuse to let go Thank you for hugging me so strongly.
Rest in Paradise QUEEN MELISSA

Melissa was the greatest person i have ever met. She had the biggest heart and was the most down to earth friend you can possibly have. Melissa always had plans for herself no matter what she would have a goal to achieve and she would do it like the queen she was. The most forgiving person in the world, selfless, caring, gorgeous woman ever. Melissa holds great value in my life as she gave me something another one can’t which was a best friend, my soulmate. We always talked no matter how long she couldn’t reply, she’d always get back to me to let me know how she is. I miss her powerful energy. She is a powerful woman still and nothing could ever ruin that. The light she gave me once before will continue to shine in my heart.
She was supposed to come to the same college as me so we can ride together every morning, i’ll miss that plan forever. I’ll miss all the plans we once had together. But until we meet again I will cherish the memories and laughs you provided me each and every time we talked and hung out.
Rest In Peace my Gemini queen I love you.

Melissa was such a sweet girl. Growing up as a toddler I spent a lot of time with her and her siblings. Staying at my apartment and enjoying the pool during the summer. Going to water parks and the Zoo. She was a happy child who looked out for others. Always had a happy smile. Even up to her last days I reached out to her and she had many plans for her future. Melissa, you will be missed and you’ll be forever in our hearts.

My gorgeous little sister was always the center of attention. With her beautiful hazel eyes and golden curly locks, she had a type of beauty and style to her that made her hard to miss.

She's someone so strong and could always stand up for herself no matter who it was. One of my favorite memories of her that I always laugh at and tell everyone I meet when describing her is when we went to the dollar store to buy some things for painting. We were in line just talking and the line moved up and a lady behind us asked if we were going to walk up and asked if we were in line, and I said "yeah" and right after I said that this lady proceeded to walk in front of us anyway and I was just shocked and didn't say a word, but Melissa went right up to the lady and said "Ummmmmm, excuse me??" in the sassiest tone, I could not help but let out a quiet laugh. The lady was startled, and gestured for us to go in front of her. And I looked at her and she said "What? You didn't say anything, so I had to"

And this was the type of girl Melissa was. Straight up, and did not let people step all over her. She had this courage that I could only dream of. Her personality was out of this world. I love her humor, her little laugh, her makeup looks. She was someone I looked up to. She was someone who I thought was so strong she did not need anyone else. She was and always will be my sister, my guardian angel, my love, my heart. Until we meet again. I love you Melissa,

with love,
