I would like to express my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one. I lost my father last year and something that comforts me is that Jesus promised at John 5:28,29 that the day is coming when he is going to resurrect all those in the grave. Until then, it is just like they are sleeping.(John 11:11-14) I hope that your family finds this comforting too. audra.chapmon@gmail.com

Melissa "Missy" and I were classmates and graduated together. She was always a friendly and loving spirit.. caring beyond words. We had spoken recently when my son became an amputee. It touched me that after all these years she would take the time to make sure he was ok and coping with the changes in his life.. she went so far as to also talk with him and give him words of encouragement. This meant so very much to the both of us. I was deeply saddened to hear of her passing and I pray you all find strength and comfort during this time. She was a wonderful friend.. God keep and bless you all... Rest in peace Missy... till we meet again...

I went to school here in Union with Melissa. She was a good person and will be deeply missed. I haven't seen her since High School. You and your family have my deepest sympathy and prayers. May God be with you during this difficult time. God bless.
