Our hearts are filled with great sadness for the loss of Melissa. She was such a sweet person. We have many wonderful memories of the bright eyed, sweet and shy little girl that became a friend to our son and us in elementary school. We enjoyed the times that we got together with Melissa and her mother and took the kids on outings or just hanging out. Though that was years ago, she touched our hearts in a way that makes her passing such a tragic loss. The family is is our thoughts and prayers and when you look up into the sky and see a star, just remember that it is Melissa looking down and watching over all of you! Love, Bob and Terry, Brandon, Kalei Marie, Scott and Megan Daar
