    Dear Hizer Family,
    You won’t recognize my name but my mom and I substituted at the schools where your parents both taught. We enjoyed watching your amazing mom provide such a fun learning environment. She was a new teacher and all the students loved her. Our sincere prayers and thoughts are with all of you right now!

    Jeff and the girls, I am sorry for your loss and praying for you guys during this time. Melissa was one of my teachers 16-17 years ago at Parkview. I am going to try to make it to the visitation on Tuesday but unfortunately I won’t be able to be at the service on Wednesday. Melissa was loved by so many people and she will be missed by just as many.
