    Oh, no!

    So many thoughts fill my mind and so much sadness fills my heart!

    God bless all those who love her...She certainly challenged the damn Beast! What a Warrior!

    I know how hard it must have been to bring us the news, but I thank you, Janice.

    Dear LizzardLee, you will be more than just missed!

    Just when the caterpillar thought her world was over, she became a butterfly! Don't give up five minutes before the miracle!!

    Her strength and courage was an inspiratoin to us all.
    May we honor her memory by making the most of each and every day, letting our family and friends know how much we care about them and love them in spite of their shortcomings!
    Live your life so it has meaning.
    May her family find peace and remember the wonderful woman that was in their lives.
    She will be missed by all of us.

    Hi Everyone,

    Please, go into Melissia's blog and read what either her DH or brother wrote on there. It is a very awesome tribute to her.


    On the top of the page is a beautiful pic of her and DH on their wedding day. She fought BC for over 14 years. She tried everything from conventional medical stuff to holistic healing. It is well worth reading her blog. She did a superb job on it.

    Melissia, you will be so missed. You gave it all you could and then some.

    Much love

    Thank you for taking the time to share this news with us I am so very sorry to hear that so has passed. She did fight hard for a long time sometimes the beast wins. She is in a calmer place now no more fighting there she is at rest with her angels. My prayers and thoughts are with her family and friends at this time. Sending loads of angel hugs Roberta,
