February 25 | Made You Look
(I received this in the submission form today. It is from Rita's sister, Robin.)

The summer before Melissa died: Rita, Carrie, Melissa and I were staying in a motel near the airport the day before leaving back to Alaska. We were hanging in the room and Carrie and Melissa looked sad to be leaving, so I was standing facing sliding glass doors to the outside. I was messing around pretending to be waving to someone outside. My niece Carrie and my sister Rita would not fall for this prank. I kept pretending to be noticing someone outside and pretending someone was noticing me. When Melissa finally jumped up and said, "I can't stand this, I have got to see who you are looking at." I thought it was so funny; I finally got her to look.

That is my fondest memory of Melissa, I wish I could have had more.
