I’m so shocked and saddened by hearing of Missys death. Even though I haven’t seen her in a long time I would have gone straight to see her if I had known she was I’ll. She was a smart, determined, and beautiful person. I hate that I will never run into her in the grocery store again. I was always glad to see her. I’m praying for peace that passes all understanding for Danny and the boys. Rest peacefully Missy.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I had the pleasure of knowing Missy in high school and working together on the drill team. She was always a bright light and absolutely adored you Danny, even back then. I pray God leads you through the days, months and years ahead. Missy never put herself first. She was always there if she thought she was needed.
