Melissa Chavonne Wilson, beloved daughter of Dale and Dawn Wilson and older sister to Kaitlyn Wilson of Calgary, passed away on Friday, May 9, 2008 at the age of 13 years.
Melissa was a beautiful and courageous spirit that fought a long and hard battle with a disease that would ultimately claim her life. The world that she knew was fraught with pain and the unknown, yet she never once voiced a complaint, or asked “why me” The lives that she touched on this long journey are to numerous to mention, there is not a person whom she has met that will ever forget her wondrous spirit that was our daughter. Though she was limited by her illness in so many ways, she was still able to see the joy and beauty that was all around her. She was able to involve herself in the best way, so that she could travel a more normal journey than the one that was mapped out for her by God.
A Celebration of Melissa’s life will be held at St. Peter’s Anglican Church (903 – 75th Avenue S.W.) on Friday, May 16, 2008 at 1:00pm. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
