I am so deeply sorry for the loss of Missy. A beautiful life taken too soon. She was a beautiful daughter, mother, and sister/in-law. She raised two amazing children, and made her family proud. I had the joy of being a part of her life for some time, and she was always so polite to me and took me in. She is also the auntie of my two incredible children. They truly loved their Aunt Missy. I know this time is extremely hard for all of you, but I also know how strong all of you are, and having the memories of her, and when you talk about her, you will all get through this.Remember the happy times, embrace the laughs, cherish the smiles, and appreciate the special moments you have all shared with her. She made such an impression on so many people, and she will truly be missed. May God Bless her up in heaven, and he welcomes her with his big amazing open arms. She is now with Mark, and her father. God called her home, far too soon, but he decided it was her time. May you all get through this, and her spirit will keep you all going. Missy was one of the strongest people I have ever met, and she was a fighter, and never gave up on anything. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time. May God Bless You all, and get you through this difficult time.
Missy you have touched my heart with your courage even though I never got to meet you. Just hearing of your determination has inspired me. Enjoy a pain free eternity with our Lord.
