My story

[p]My beautiful Daughter Melissa Rose Watts was born on 1st August 1993. [/p][p]To her family she was Melissa or 'Lissy', and to her friends she was Mel. She touched so many people’s hearts, with her smile, her kindness, her caring & unselfish nature, her great sense of humour, her passion for life, and her fun & laughter. She was a ‘giver’, and accepted people for who they were; she saw the good in all.[/p][p]She was in her second year at Worcester University, training to be a nurse. She had a huge circle of friends from her childhood, school, Northampton & Worcester Universities as well as from home & particularly Souldrop and it's local pub The Bedford Arms where she worked for a time.[/p][p]Melissa passed away in her sleep on May 12th, 2014 very suddenly, at only 20 years of age. [/p][p]In the blink of an eye our world fell apart, never to be the same again. [/p][p]Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) were by our sides throughout this desperate time in our lives, offering us tremendous support through their Bereavement Counsellors.[/p][p][br][/p]
