Proverbs 31:10-31 Speaks about My dear friend Melissa....A Virtuous Woman. She was all of these truths plus more. Here are verses 28-31 of Proverbs that sum up what Melissa was:Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate....Condolences to the Family.
May She forever rest in Peace.

Tim and Family,

There are no words for what you all must be feeling. A sudden loss of someone you love is hard to reconcile. I know Melissa loved her family with her whole heart. She beamed with happiness and her love overflowed when in your presence. Be sure to carry her in your hearts and to share all the wonderful memories that were made.
Dear God, I pray is that you hold Melissa's family in your arms and comfort them as they travel down the road of life and through this difficult time of life. I pray that you help them remember all the love Melissa had for each of them. I pray that with your help the memories they made and the unconditional love Melissa gave will be a model for their lives and will carry them through the rest of their lives.
Continue to dance in Heaven and watch over your loved ones.
