Linda- I am so sorry to hear about Marissa. I can only know your grief by my sister Pam (your cousin) having lost both of her sons in separate traumas.
I pray that your strong beliefs will help you through this time of grief as the reasons never seem to lessen the pain. God bless you and yours during this time.

We are so sorry for your loss. May God give your family strength to move on during this difficult time, give you peace of mind, and hold you tight. I met Marissa once at a meeting I went to with my daughter. I can picture her beautiful smile that lit up the room. God bless you all.

Linda, my heart is breaking for you. I cannot imagine the grief you are experiencing. You have been in my prayers continuously the last few days. I know that she and Natalie shared so many fun times and laughter together in school! Marissa's sweet smile was present in every picture.

Beautiful Angel Marissa,

You will be missed more than you can imagine.

The memory of your warm smile, friendly and thoughtful and kind ways will stay with me always. I'm happy we had those times together. I'm very sad we won't have more here on earth. But some day we will be together again. I pray our grandmother is holding you in her arms. And that you will not ever feel alone but loved. Just as much as we loved you while you were living.

May God comfort your mom and dad and brothers and sister and our entire family. These are difficult times for all of us, but especially for your mom and dad.

Love you always Marissa and you will never be forgotten ~ Your Cousin Susy

Greg, Drew and I send our deepest sympathies. They are working and doctor won't let me make the trip alone. Know that she is no longer hurting and in a wonderful place. May GOD wrap his arms around ya'll and ease your pain and suffering. We love ya'll. Marissa was very beautiful as all your children are, and a joy to be around. Our memories of your visit here are etched forever in our minds. Know that our hearts, love and arms are wrapped around you each and every day. She will be missed, but never forgotten.
