Thank you for sharing your precious child with so many. Melissa was my daughter (Kayla Berrios) coworker and friend. Then, when I decided to transfer to Charleston VAMC, Kayla (advised by Melissa), was insistent on my living at Riverland Woods, "nowhere else". So, I'll say Melissa was a coworker, friend, and neighbor.

When I was going through transition with relocation/employment, Melissa "showed up". She was a lifesaver to many. She gave me the shoes, I spoke of at her memorial yesterday.

My sympathy Deb and Dennis, Cory, Steve and Gretchen on the passing of Melissa a beautiful, smart, talented, a "Lean On Me" type of young lady. A daughter, sister, nurse, coworker, friend willing to help where and when needed. Thank you, Melissa, for coming to my home for Thanksgivings and/or Christmas dinners and specially last Thanksgiving to laugh and eat and share a prayer with us. We "Never Have To Say Goodbye" only LOVE. "Dream On" sweet angel-see you later.

It is so hard to think something like this could ever happen and then it does and you just remember being little kids living on the same street. You will be missed.

Dear Lisa,
Words cannot express the sorrow I have for your loss. I don't know if you remember me, but, I remember you, and if your daughter was anything like you, the world is at a loss too. I am raising you all up in prayer, for peace and "understanding" that surpasses our knowledge. Please know that she's being taken care of in heaven with the multitude of those who went on sister will look out for her. I am so deeply sorry..

I worked with Melissa, too, and agree that she was always smiling and a fun person to be around. I have been so saddened by her loss and her absense is truly missed. May she rest in peace.

Melissa will be truly missed! Very few people have the gift to imprint on others hearts and she was one of the few who has left an everlasting print on the hearts of all of us who knew her. SIHP baby girl! No more sorrow! Family I will keep you all in my prayers! Blessings!
