She was spectacular. My sweet cousin. You who were a part of her everyday life know how special she was. We lived so far apart, but managed to keep in touch, though not enough. Our families were close as we were growing up; for that I am grateful. For the many shared Thanksgivings and Christmas eves, as children. I will miss her and her brilliance. Her beauty, her wit, her humor. She was so fun to talk to. So glad I had a couple 2 hour long phone calls with her in the last few years. I can't believe she's gone. What a loss for all of us. Bill, Caroline, and Isabelle, David and Rodney and families, I send you my deepest condolences.

I am so sorry for your loss. Melissa and I spent many years together in real estate and became great friends. I will miss our lunches-where we usually ended up as the last patrons as gabbed about family and grandchildren! She was truly a wonderful woman who loved her family and wanted only the best for all! Please know you all are in our prayers and thoughts. She will be missed by so many. Wishing you all peace in the days to come.
