As included in Melissa's Eulogy, SHE was indeed a Proverbs 31:10-31 woman.
She makes linen garments and sells them
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue is the law of kindness.
She watches over the ways of her household
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband

We are so sorry to hear of your loss.
Melissa was such a beautiful and gracious person. Many years ago, I locked myself out of the house with my young daughter. Melissa was so sweet. She invited us in and then sat on the floor with my daughter and I. She made us at ease and we enjoyed visiting with her. She will be greatly missed. Please know, that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you grieve her loss.

Jeff, I have been a bystander on this journey you and your family have traveled recently, lifting you all up in prayer. I hope it is of some comfort to you knowing your Dad was there to greet Melissa last Thursday. May your memories bring you great joy in this time of despair. God bless and keep you all in the coming days. Leann
