One Comment on “Melissa MacDonald”

  1. John S. Lucas Says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with Melissa’s family and other friends. We went to elementary school together and lived on the same block as children. I moved away but have kept in touch and seen Melissa from time to time over the years. Back then, of course, I knew her as Missy. She was, as so many have noted, always a generous, kind, thoughtful spirit. She made everyone feel welcome wherever she went. At the same time, she had a sharp wit and a wonderful sense of humor. She was a joy to be around, and I know her passing is a loss for those whom she touched. John Lucas, Washington DC (formerly of Shawnee, KS)
