Melissa, you will forever be remembered as the most amazing auntie to many nieces and nephews, they will truly miss her presence.
She was the eldest of six children. All of her siblings looked up to her, and wanted to be just like her. The fact that you’re not here, will always cause us pain, but you will forever be in our hearts. Rest easy my beautiful sister, you had a beautiful heart and soul.
Your smile and laughter would always light up any room you walked into. You will be truly missed each and every day.
“Smoke a big one up there for us.”
