In Pennsylvania today, there was a Memorial Mass held at St. Jude's Catholic Church for Melissa.
I spoke with Patti (her mother) and she said it was a beautiful Mass and the church once again was filled with many sunflowers and much love.
Patti said over 150 people attended the memorial.
What a wonderful tribute to this amazing young woman.
I wish I could have been there to be part of this, but we (as a family) were there in spirit.
We kept Melissa's family in our prayers as we thought of them today.
Again, a huge thank you to all of you prayer warriors that prayed for her. Many people have said that they could not believe that our prayers were not answered.
I can only reply with,"They were in many more ways that we can understand and in many more ways we have yet to discover."
God is so good and He does take good care of us.
Blessed be God Forever!
