Mary and family,
I am so sorry for your loss I heard that your daughter was fighting breast cancer soon after my mom lost her battle to the same. I thought of you often I was hoping she won her battle. Words can not express the sorrow I feel for your loss. Just remember you are never alone.

With the sincerest sympathy,

I was shocked and saddened to hear Missy had passed away! It had been a little more then a year since we had crossed paths. When I saw her she looked beautiful as always, and appeared to be doing well! Missy and I were introduced when I became close friends with her Aunt Dina! The first time I met her was at Bobby and Danielle's wedding. My first impression of her was; she's probably a snob only because of her beauty and her awesome smile! What I learned from her was never to judge a book by it's cover!! She was not only blessed with beauty in looks but also had a beautiful personality and was quite fun to be around!! I know the first thing I noticed was that BEAUTIFUL smile!! How could anyone miss that! I will always think of her and remember that smile!! It was a blessing just to know her for a short time and she will I'm sure be greatly missed!! My prayers to her family. They we're the closest family I've ever met, and it was great to see the love they all shared for one another! Love and miss u Missy! Hope you are having spaghetti up in heaven with grandmom and grandpop Graziani and enjoying the fact that the pain is gone and you will no longer suffer! What a beautiful angel I know you are!!

Dear Mary Lou,
I am so very sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful daughter.

I met Missy a few times and know parts of the families for several decades. Missy is an inspiration and lesson to anyone who gets dealt a cancer sentence - she fought like a warrior and did it with dignity and strength, She entered and left the world a very loved person. The family is a example of how family should pull together and support and be there for each other. I am sure others will think of this when it is there time to deal with a crisis and your example will guide them. You have a guardian angel watching over you now who is likely spending time with her grandparents and Victor and those that passed before.

When I was in her company she lit up the atmosphere with her beautiful smile and presence. She was truly a warrior never complained. She was an awesome angel and a beautiful woman inside and outside. Love and kisses up to you in heaven. I will think of her when I see the sunshine. Prayers and comfort to her family.

I knew Missy for many years, I not only had the privilege to be her friend. I also got to work with her. She was always so happy and such an upbeat, loving and fun person to be around. I loved every chance I got to be around her, whether to spend a night out with her or just five minutes just bumping into her and hearing she was doing well. She always was so positive and never would let you think she was having A rough day or scared, or in pain. She just really let cancer know it was not gonna run her life or knock her down. She was determined to live everyday to its fullest. I just loved her spirit and her love for life. Everytime I would hear of someone having cancer. I would tell her story and how inspirational she was. If anyone would ask what you loved most or remember most about Missy... It would be her smile and her happy, loving, positive, kind heart she gave to so many people and I was lucky to be one of those people. And I am blessed and feel so lucky to say She was my friend and I will forever love and miss her everyday until we meet again. You will never be forgotten. You are pain free. Now you are the angel we all knew you were. Love you Missy. XO XO
