    My heart is broken for 5 years she has been my recruiter . She has stuck by me threw thick and thin . Never once judge me for anything I loved when talked on the phone for hours I probably made her late on her work because we talked a lot . She was truly a blessing to me and she been there for me .. any time I called her she was always laugh and smiling I could hear it in her voice . Melissa was an upbeat and positive person . She was what I need at that time in my life I didn’t know them but now I do . We grew a lot together she wasn’t more than a recruiter She was my friend and family she will truly be missed !! Heaven gain a very special person
    To her family
    I’m sorry for u loss and I’ll be praying for y’all

    With deep sadness, I say goodbye to a “One of a Kind” angel. You came in to my life when I was at my lowest point. I only hope YOU felt ALL the love & happiness that you gave to sooo many! Be with God in eternal peace Sweet Girl.
