I remember meeting Melissa when I was learning sign language and she was such a fabulous person to practice with. I remember her smile and laughing with her when we were in middle school and talking to her was the highlight of my day. It's so sad to hear that such a wonderful person has left this world so soon. I know she's here with us in spirit and her legacy will carry on through her beautiful children. My condolences to the family at this time of bereavement.
