Mark Family and Nelson Family,
I was so sorry to hear about Melissa. I still remember the day we became friends. In fact I still have some stationary she brought back for me from the Nelson family Caribbean Cruise.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.

Dear Amber & family:

Hal, Brett, Brede, and I were all so sorry to hear that Melissa has passed away. I hope you know how much she meant to us. In the short time we knew her she became such a good friend and an important part of our lives, especially Brett & Brede's. She truly was a second grandma to them. The love and support she showed to them will always be appreciated. Melissa was one of the few people I know who always showed a genuine love for everyone she knew. She was an extraordinary person and we feel blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know her through having you as our nanny, Amber. It's no wonder you're the incredible person you are--you had a wonderful example in your mom. We love you.

My memories of Melissa are when she was a little child; always bubbly, cute and full of sunshine and fun. I send my love and heartfelt sympathy to her family-especially to Elaine, my mom's dearest and best friend. My heart aches for all of you.
Love,

You are my second mother and will be dearly missed. I remember Amber and I had beed out after a long night of being out and we came home looking forward to Ambers bed and discovered it was full of a whole box of Fruit Loops that Melissa had emptied out into the bed. Just goes to show her sense of humor. The long conversations on the phone and all the jokes and laughter nobody could ever replace my second mom. I Love You and may you rest in peace. Love Tiff ( and of course Bryon and Danyon)

It has been many years since we have been apart of the Mark family, but all the memories and love that was share has never been lost. It feels like yesterday that Dale and Melissa started dating I can still remember her smiling face. Even though I haven’t seen Dale, Melissa, and the kids for sometime they have always been in my thoughts and will never be forgotten. My family sends our deepest condolences to Dale, Amber, Abrey, Brock, Melissa’s family and to David, Kitty, Connie, and Jackie we send our love and support through this hard time.
