Jeff,and to her husband and children. I am so sorry for your loss it is strange how so many peoples lives cross paths and we don't always realize it. My daughter works with a friend of missys and got to meet her at her friends wedding. She had told me of her illness and was deeply saddened by it. She was telling me of her passing,when I seen the name Harrison beside her name I realized that i had known Missy many years ago when she was a little girl. What a beautiful woman she grew up to be. I grew up down the road in Waynedale and was friends with Becky and worked with Jackie. You all have my deepest sympathy and prayers. JILL (HARMEYER) LEE
