Melissa, you were a beautiful, spirited, kind, loving and most courageous girl. You touched us all and will always be a part of my life. As the days, months and years go by, you live in our hearts, never to be forgotten. I can only imagine your new life and one day we will all be reunited. My love to you and all of the CHOC angels, give Katie a hug from her mommy :)

Whenever I hear the song that says "don't forget about me.." that Melissa requested as a part of her service, it always brings back memories of a courageous young girl that I was so fortunate to know. I always said, your Mom was meant to be the mother of little girls, and now you have two little sisters to watch over. I continue to think of you often. Peace forever.

Dear Gloria:
I have been reading your affectionate exchanges with your dear sweet little one, and I will not even try to imagine your heartache, but your daughter does see you suffering and she would want you to live, and laugh and smile again. No matter how unbearable and how heavy your heart may be God laid a foundation for you and gave to you the most precious of all gifts, your little angel. She may have only been here a short time and your heart feels a grief only known to you but live for her, go on in her memory and the ache that is so prevalent today will subside tomorrow, whether it be a year or ten it will happen, although never completely. She wants your heart to heal, you will never forget, but just as any precious gift when opened gives you joy, the gift God gave to you can be opened daily! Your connection with Melissa will never depart this life, it will never fade, and it will never pass. For now you are here and she has been received home but she awaits you, but only God knows when you will reunite. For the interim, feel the blessing that she watches over you and when you feel the breeze on your skin she touches you, and when you see the butterfly sway that is her showing you that she glides into your day. When you hear the sweet melody of music that is her laugh, know that she is with you. Her enduring presence will forever be felt for the rest of your days, but know her hard fought battle was not in vain, she could move mountains in her weakest moment, and because she was from your loins you can as well. Be well my friend as your tears flow freely she sprinkles your head with approval that life is worth living and on that day that you wrap your arms around her once again that will be the day you are reborn to her in everlasting life. But only God knows the hour. May these words calm your soul and give you the peace that you so richly deserve.

Please accept these words with fondness and affection.

Marty

Hey baby it's been a couple of days since I wrote anything but, I wrote in the myspace & carepages. I miss you so much it's still unreal to me that you are gone.. I know you are watching over me now and you are at peace no more pain, chemo, surgeries, radiation, 23pills a day and the list goes on, on but, I just want to tell you again I love you and miss. I know I said it too many times but, it's true... love you babe, till we meet again.. your mommy
August 26, 2007
Melissa I miss you so much that I don't know how much longer I can live like this.. I miss having you next to me at night talking and waking up next to you talking about what's for breakfast.. Now, it's just me, Bella & Buddy. This has been the worst experience in my whole life, life without you.. I pray that I will re-unite with you soon.. This is just unbearable to live. Love my little birdie.. mom
August 24, 2007
Hey babe,
Just wanted to let you know for the million time that I love you and miss you so much!!! What keeps me going is those crazy little kittens (5months old) they are something else. I bet you are cracking up at every little thing these babies are doing.. Melissa, I love you so much baby each day it gets harder for me. I miss you babe.. love you.. mom

When I look up toward the sky, I always think of Melissa as a bright shining star who is dazzling the heavens with her angelic energy.
Melissa had so much to offer this world, and for her to have left at such a young age is difficult to fathom. There is a greater plan, and Melissa has found peace. My wish for all who grieve for her is to find that peace within themselves. You must know that Melissa could only have been that special person because of all of the love and devotion you gave to her as she grew and as she fought to live every moment in life.

You have my deepest sympathy.
August 21, 2007
Beautiful Melissa, I wonder all the time what you and Katie are doing up there in Heaven. I feel so comforted knowing that you are together, along with all of our special CHOC Angels. When I see your pictures, I remember all of the times you touched my life with your angelic spirit. Your service was so beautiful, a tribute to a young lady who in 16 yrs. accomplished what the Lord put before her with the greatest of strength, perseverance, courage, love and faith. I will always remember what you and our other "Angels" have taught us, so that at those times of total all encompasing grief and loss, the journeys of our babies will give us the strength to continue. Until that glorious day when we are reunited in Heaven, you are in my heart.
August 21, 2007
Hey babe I miss you so much! I would like to say as the day comes it is getting better but, it's not. I'm so lost without mamma, I can't wait until we are reunited.
August 20, 2007
Hey babe, it doesn't get better each day comes and goes and I'm completely lost without you. It's now been 3wks since you returned home to the Lord. But, I miss you so much that its so hard waking up in the morning and not seeing you next to me.. I know you are in a better place but, this seems so unreal. Until we reunite again my love.. Love your mommy..
August 18, 2007
Hey baby girl, I just want to say that I miss you so much, and love you so much.. Melissa you were/are the best thing that ever happened to my life and I know I told you this before. But, I wish you were still here I'm completely lost without you babe. I love you babe.. love your mom
August 17, 2007
love you baby girl, I miss your smile, you laugh, your talk, your smell, babe this doesn't seem real to me I still wake up hoping you will still be next to me. But, you're not it hurts. This shouldn't had happened to you. I know you are in a better place but, I want to be with you. It was always Gloria & Melissa everywhere, now its just me. This sucks! But, you are not suffering anymore baby girl. Until we meet again my love.. love you my little birdy...
your mom

Dear Melissa,
I miss you Tremendously! I'll never forget the times I babysat you and how you inturn babysat my son. Now, God and his angels will take care of you.
I will keep you in my heart and never forget you!
August 06, 2007
Melissa, you were so young to leave us all behind but i am sure you are in heaven watching down upon us. I want to let you know that it has been really difficult for me to look your mother in her eyes because I cant bear to see the emptyness and suffering she has been going through.
She and Lance cared about you so much... I wish we had more time... I wish you didnt leave... but, thank you for making me understand how life is SO short and that we must embrace it and surround ourselves with loved ones!
Your Tia Melody got to know you alot better when I interpreted your funeral. She smiled everytime she heard of your "favorites" and accomplishments!
Way to keep those grades up!
I told all your little cousins to please keep there heads up and to remember the good times they shared with you... and also to tell my son everything about you when he gets older.
I still get teary eyed when I hear the music you selected for the funeral playing on the radio...
August 03, 2007
Hey cousin, I still can't believe that your gone and I'm still having a hard time coping with it. I just want to let you know that I love you so much and I'm gonna miss that corky laugh of yours.
August 03, 2007
I saw your picture and my heart went to my throat. Rest in peace.

Oh what a wonderful girl you must have been here in the natural. Now that you are smiling down on us the sun will shine brighter and the moons radiance will glow down on us to guide our way. I never met you, but it is your spirit that leads me to feel a need to write. You certainly touched me however brief, but I sense those that were privileged enough to know you will carry on your joy and love. May God Bless your parents, family and friends in this difficult time and let them know that even those that don’t know them feel their pain. As your parents celebrate the miracle they received when you were born I am honored to know that you were here for 16 years. Your life may have been short in years but long in courage and love.
August 02, 2007
I had not met you personally and after reading this I had to send my condolences to your family and loved ones. You sound like a really strong and special girl..You have gone home to be the Lord now and you are so right your spirit will live on forever. God Bless ....Rest in Peace and my thoughts and prayers go out to all your family and friends...
August 02, 2007
Even though i did not know Melissa just with what she did in her short life & her picture made me hurt.
I hope the Lord gives her parents the strength thru this hard time.
August 02, 2007
My husband & I read your obituary & even though we didn't have the chance to meet you, what an inspiration you must have been to the lives you touched. You must have made a difference in many lives. Our sincere & heartfelt sympathy to your family and friends. Our hearts ache for them.
August 02, 2007
Just like you said Melissa my tough little angel, God may have taken your body and organs but, you will live on forever in everyone's Heart and Souls. The memories of your beautiful colgate smile will help me get through the rest of my life until It's my time and I can see you and that smile again. You were a true inspiration to me and all who knew you. I love you! I'll miss you and I'll see you again whenever God decides to take me back. Have lots of fun with Katie and Samantha-Jo.
I love you baby. Rest in Peace.
August 02, 2007
