So glad I was able to spend some time with Melissa on her final birthday last year and then come by for a brief visit and hug during her last week. She was truly blessed to have the special care and love that her mother and her brother gave her 24/7. True love is patient and kind. She will be waiting for us looking beautiful and healthy when we meet again..and so very happy. I send my condolences to the family for now.

Praying for the Autry family at this time. Reggie, the Bible promises that the Lord will not put upon us more than we can bear. We are uplifting you, Camden and Torren in fervent prayer. Remember the faith that was passed down from your father and mother. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted.

Anyone who rescues and cares for animals the way that Melissa did has a beautiful heart. And no one could have experienced more love and care than Melissa did in her last days from her brother Jerry and Peggy. She left us in the way that we all would have wished, in a loving circle with hands linked with her beloved brother and mother.

Dear Miz Peggy... I hold you all in my prayers. Melissa is now free and fully whole. Bless you all during this time and always. From a deeply grateful former employee of the original NAH clinic.

My thoughts and prayers are with family and friends. Melissa always wore the best smelling perfume. She taught me many years ago how to wear it. Spray in the air and walk through the mist. I think about her every time I use it. We had lots of good times at conferences (especially in Florida) and working together. She will be missed.
