I never had a sibling sister, so when I was able to get to know Melissa, we started calling each other Sissy, it didn’t matter that I was her Sister in law, we were just Sisters! My heartfelt condolences to go to the Monteith family, along with prayers of comfort during this difficult time! I’ll see you in the New World Sissy, John 5;28, 29. With love ~ Wendy
