It is with a heavy heart I must announce the passing of my beautiful wife, Melissa Anne Wiges.

She was a loving wife, a caring sister, and a proud mother. She gave all she could to those around her. She was an introspective sort but, as one of her favorite authors Jane Austen said,

“It isn't what we say or think that defines us, but what we do.”

She loved, lived, and experienced life to its fullest. She had many creative passions such as art, writing, photography, collecting, decorating, and baking, to name a few. This creativity had an impact on everything she did, and she created wholeheartedly.

She was the type of person we need more of in this world.

As I try to find meaning in this tragedy, I will take solace in all the good that she left behind, the many family members she touched and who loved her, and do the best I can with the plans we had together.

She will be deeply and sorely missed.
