Melissa Edmanson Memorial Fund

On March 26, 2016 the world lost a beautiful light and Heaven gained an Angel.

Melissa Elizabeth Edmanson, born December 22, 1987, was always a blessing to those around her. But for those that didn't know Melissa, she had more than her fair share of hardships in a life taken from us all too soon. But she was the kind of person, that in the midst of her deepest struggles or sorrows, somehow always managed to keep her beautiful smile radiant. She was a soldier, relentlessly remaining positive in the face of adversity, refusing to give in despite any unfair circumstances life dealt. Instead, Melissa continued to spread God's love, plan and purpose for her life and the lives of those around her. She's been called home far too soon, and now her three year old  son, Jonathan, is without his loving mother whom he adored.

Please  donate to the Melissa Edmanson Memorial Fund to help Melissa's family with these unexpected, unfortunate funeral expenses and keep her memory alive as she watches over all of us from Heaven, finally reunited with the King.  All proceeds will go directly to the Edmanson Family for funeral expenses and anything beyond funeral expenses will go towards her son, Jonathan's future. 

Melissa is survived by her son Jonathan Peyton, younger sister, Julia, younger brother Robert, mother, Sandy and father, Bob. 

Thank you for your donation.  It is greatly appreciated during this difficult time. Thank you for continuing to keep those in mourning in your thoughts and prayers.
