I knew something was wrong when you didn't return my messages. We met more than 22 years ago when I first brought my boxer, Coffey, to South Brunswick Animal Hospital. She was such a great judge of character because each time we went there, she immediately went right to you. I treasure our friendship because you were always forthright and totally honest about everything from your past to the present. I know that you and Jerry are together, maybe planning a little mischief just to make G-d smile. I will hold you in my heart for the rest of my life.

My sincere condolences to Melissa'a Family. My tears flowed for a friend who was always there for her friends and neighbors. She deeply loved animals and in turn they were appreciative of her love and care. I'll miss her 'hellos' and laughs, but I take solace in knowing she is God's loving arms.
