Support for Melissa's Family

Our beautiful friend Melissa Miller VanBruwaene tragically passed away yesterday. We don't have answers about what happened yet; just know that she leaves behind a loving husband - Jake - and three young daughters - ages 13, 10, and 7 - who are reeling from this terrible shock.

Melissa was a bright light who touched everyone she met with her kindness, who was quick to laugh, and who will be missed by many. She was a devoted wife, mother, Christian, and friend.

Please take a moment to visit Melissa's Facebook page -- many people are posting there sharing stories, memories, and testimonies to the amazing person she was.

Then please take a moment and donate whatever you can, even if the amount seems too small, because it all adds up. We want to help Melissa's husband Jake with the awful reality of final expenses, and to help him with the costs of moving forward with three young girls who no longer have their mommy at home. 

RIP, sweet friend.

Love, the Besties
Aron, Laurie, Maggie, Rosie, and Shellie
