Nancy & I still remember our first meeting Melissa when we met her when we came to the coast on our honeymoon in June of 1977.
I am so sorry for your loss. Our prayers are with you and your family.
May the good Lord be with you during this difficult time.
Betty, Allen and family
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Melissa was such a great friend to the Reardens and especially to Marti. What an inspiration to this world but heaven has gained another angel. May God bless you all.
Nothing can be harder that losing a child. Melissa was such a precious person. My heart cries out for your loss that God in his mercy will comfort you in this time of sorrow. I'll always remember playing Scrabble with her in Tennessee when we all vacationed there.
Please accept my condolence. I know this is a very difficult time, but, your family and friends are here to provide you with comfort and support that you need in the coming days ahead. May you also draw comfort to in knowing to that our creator has lovingly provided through his son and His Word, a hope for our dead love ones. Please take a moment to read Jesus Words at John 5:28, 29 regarding the resurrection hope.
Allen and Betty, I am soooo sorry you had to return Melissa to God so soon. It is nearly unbearable to loose those we love so dearly. Melissa was so special and loved by so many of us. Mother and Dad, as well as many others, met her at the gate, I'm sure. May God's love and mercy encompass ya'll through the difficult days and months ahead. Love and Prayers Forever and Always.
