Beautiful, caring, funny, sensitive, these are just a few things that come to mind when I think about my daughter Melissa, or "Messa" as most of her family and freinds knew her. Melissas body was found off a muddy trail along a stretch of beach in Pt. Angeles Washington on Christmas day, 2004, a victim of homicide by strangulation. She was only 16 years old and had her whole life ahead of her. Her family and freinds' lives will never be the same without her. We miss her bright,contagious smile that could light up a room. She will never be forgotten.

it's been almost 3 years but trust me, you will never leave my heart no matter how much time goes by. you changed my life and the lives of everyone around you. you were my best friend all of middle school and taught me so many things about life that i still go by today. i wish we's stayed friends during high school, but we can't go back. all i can wish for now is to see you again someday. you have the heart of an angel and now you ARE an angel where no one can hurt you, RIP.

you were tangled and mangled out of unimaginable hate, by the time you were found it was to late. When we found out you died, it turned our world upside down. You were so special to us all this doesnt even explain how much pain we suffered. You would want us to move on we know this is true but there is one thing we all need to tell you. ven as the years go by, and even to this day, you will always be remembered as our loving Messa Mae.
