In Loving Memory of Melissa Dugas

Melissa was a wonderful loving and caring person, taken from this world way too soon.  She worked hard and strived for excellence in getting her education and reaching her goals.  The light of her life was her son Bobby, whom she would do anything for and you'd see her face light up anytime she talked about him.  She had some tough times but pushed through them with the determination and fight we all know she had, keeping one thing in mind to get through it all - Bobby!  Now that sweet, innocent, loving boy does not have his Mother to tuck him into to bed at night anymore, to sing him songs, to read books with him, to teach him how to be a young gentleman, to see him reach his goals in life.  Melissa will now be his angel, watching over him as he goes through his life.

We are all heartbroken and trying hard to cope with everything especially during this difficult time in the world.  We can't bring Melissa back but we can honor her and her most precious achievement - Bobby.  Your support will help the family be able to put Melissa to rest during this difficult time and celebrate her life when we are able to be together at a later date.  Your contributions will be transferred into a trust designed for Bobby's education by Diana and Richard, Melissa's parents.  Anything you can do to help is greatly appreciated.
