December 7, 1954-March 28, 2013
Resident of Aptos
I would like to be remembered for my stunning beauty, astute intellect, Olympic caliber swimming and great contributions to mankind. However, I will settle for being remembered as a person having had a great sense of humor, a positive attitude and good manners. I had a wonderful childhood and a fantastic life, filled with exotic travel, several creative careers and happy memories created with a loving husband, parents, sisters, extended family and friends. I've had it all and have had the joy of sharing it with people who truly loved me. What more is there? Thank you, Melissa.
