Melissa will be deeply missed by many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. She will also be truly missed by many friends and co-workers. Melissa was an incredible woman of great strength and dignity, with a heart of gold. She would do anything for anyone. She had a smile that you would never forget, a smile that would brighten anyone’s day.

Melissa will always be in our hearts because in there, she is still alive. We are truly blessed that Melissa will live on through three successful organ transplants.
