Melissa was one of my Math Students at St. Joan Antida High School. She was always smiling and had a great sense of humor. After I joined FaceBook, we reconnected and shared our mutual feelings of depression. I am very saddened by her passing. I will miss her encouraging words about my Math Teaching. She helped me up when I questioned my teaching ability, and prayed for me when I was down. She has joined my Communion of Saints~~ and I will continue to talk to her in Prayer. My Deepest Sympathy to the Family. May she Rest in Peace.
Melissa and David visited my son, Dustin, at my home in East Troy and I had the opportunity to meet her. Right away I could tell she was a sweet, caring person. While at my home, I fixed some snacks and she was very appreciative, smiled and even gave me a hug! Dustin and I are very sad for David and her family. She was a blessing to all that met her,

We both met Melissa through CathoiCity Chatline about 20 years ago. We have established an ongoing long distance friendship through the years of life-changing moments.
One moment Melissa and her mother would recall the most is when our first born daughter was born. My husband called them to say “Elizabeth has arrived!” And from that moment on Melissa and her mom would always remember that one liner inside joke between friends. That in an essence is who Melissa was funny, caring, generous with what she had, a heart of gold to those who knew her, and selfless to the point of putting others first before her own needs and desires. I will miss her kind Spirit and compacity to love.

I met Melissa in CatholiCity Chat also. We were always teasing each other. She called me “Dad”. I said you have a perfectly good dad, he was still living at the time. She said you can’t have too many dads. She called my wife who was also alive at the time, mom. lol She called me about once a month. I would answer the phone and the first thing she said was, “hi trouble, how are you, how’s mom?” We mostly just laughed and were silly with each other.
We barely got to get back in touch. We talked ever so briefly. I am heart sick to hear of your passing. I hope you know how much love we have for you. Pray for us. As we ask our GOD to take you and hold you. Rest IN Peace darling friend and sister
I knew Melissa from SJA.Sometimes i would run into her in the hallway in high school. She was a sweet girl to talk to. Sometimes i would see her on Facebook. All i can say that she held in there as strong women. May she rest in peace in heaven. Prayers are with her friends and family surrounding by those who knew her and were there for her. She would cheer on c/o 96 and she would lead those people in her class to a brighter smile as we move on from day to day.
Prayers and love go out to all family and friends who have been touched by her passing. May she find peace in Heaven.
I went to the same High School as Melissa. I graduated in ’95 and never got to know Melissa that we’ll until years later with Facebook.
I do recall however how happy and excited Melissa would get at school. How inquisitive and intelligent she was.
For the past few years we’ve both sent each other messages ok Facebook to comfort each other.
I am still I’m shock over her passing. Melissa you are missed. Be with your parents, with your Lord and rest in peace with the Angels above.

I went to SJA with Melissa, she always had a smile on her face, very holy….I was happy to know her, she was a sweet sweet girl, and I loved her posts on Facebook and tried to cheer her up when she was sad …I am glad that at least, the last words I said to her were I love you… cuz she was sad… and she said she loved me back. RIP Melissa Sheridan. I’ll miss you, you are now a shining angel.
Melissa was in class of 96 with me in a lot of other students and we all remember her because she would be the happiest person in the world and she would be walking down the hall you could tell she was happy because of the way she walked when she walked it would be like a happy walk and she was always smiling but Melissa was a wonderful person. Nice and elegant pleasant person for everybody to talk to and to be around and I will never forget how happy she was smiling all the time I wish I could have talked to her Friday night and maybe that would have made a difference but I’m glad she’s in a better place now no more pain no more suffering rest in peace Melissa.
