I am so broken hearted. I have been looking for my "nieces" for such a long time.i have found Millissa so late. Memories of my little girls are still so vivid. Millissa was such a loving and optimistic person who faced her challenges with grace. Aunt Ellen and her cousins will always love her and sad we missed more time together. We send our sympathy to Tiffany and the rest of their family.

My heart is broken. I met Melissa in 1992 at Evangel college during a visit from nj. She was so kind and showed me around campus. I entered the Military and lost contact. I always wondered what she was up to in life. This is not what I was expecting to find. Im happy shes in heaven and no longer in any discomfort.
