She touched so many hearts and possessed qualities that most could only hope to develop over a lifetime.
Melissa’s patience, strength and ability to reach others without saying a word gave testament to the special young lady she was.
We were all blessed to have her in our lives.
Her contagious smile and twinkle in her eyes always made an impression everywhere she went and will forever hold a special place in the hearts of everyone she came into contact with.
Melissa’s most favorite thing in the world was balloons, her outings to Northtown Mall, her pool sessions, listening to music and spending time with all her special caregivers.
Melissa is survived by her parents, Jerry and Debie Phillips; twin brothers, Trevor and Tyler Phillips of Colbert, WA; grandmother, Anne Aalgaard of Spokane, WA; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
A celebration of her life will be held Saturday, December 21st at 2:00 at Riverview Community Center, Located at 2117 East North Crescent Avenue, Spokane, WA.
Please bring a balloon in her honor.
