To Bob and Melissa’s family,

My sincere sympathy in the passing of Melissa. My prayers go out to you at this difficult time. I have nice memories of working with Melissa in the Registrar’s office and am so happy to learn that she and Bob tied the knot but certainly grieved to learn of her passing. Bob, I’m so very sorry. Treasure your memories and may God comfort and bring you peace in the days ahead.
