Personal Description:


On March 1st 2009 my mom went to be with the lord after a 3 1/2 year battle with ovarian cancer. Not an hour goes by that I don’t remember her smiling face and her beautiful voice. She was a true fighter and was the strongest person I have ever known. We all miss her dearly and can’t wait to see her again someday.

Personal Description:

My mom was the kindest most caring person. She had a great sense of humor and we always had the best times together. She should still be here today helping me plan my upcoming wedding, but she’s not. Ovarian cancer took her from me way to soon. She was only 57. She wanted to see me get married so badly, but she was tired and she never deserved to be in the pain she was in. I am glad she is with our lord now in heaven but I am still selfish in wanting her here with me too. She touched many peoples lives and left a lasting impression in all of our hearts. We all miss her and love her so much. I hope to be able and educate people about ovarian cancer as much as humanly possible. My mom should still be here today, which is why we need to support ovarian cancer research.

Great job Melissa. Your mom was the true love of my life, and I will always miss her deeply. She will be there with us at the wedding in spirit for sure. She loved you so much, as do I.

In the beginning when Michelle and I were dediicng on a Photographer; I wasn’t sold on you guys (no offense)keep in mind I haven’t seen your work at that time. Michelle felt so strongly that we should use your service. I am so glad I listened to her!! You two are not only good at what you do, but made the whole experience truly amazing. I am glad to have met you both, and am happy that you were a part of that memorable moment. Welcome to the Hall Family !Sincerely,Christopher J. Hall
