Marissa "Woody" was my best friend and was the kindest person one would meet. She never met a stranger and if she did they would not be one for long. I remember going out to the farm she had and riding horses for hours, the shopping trips.  I really miss her. There is not a day that goes by she is not thought about.

I am so sorry to hear that Marissa has passed away. She was a very nice lady and I remember how good she made me feel when we first met. She had a very nice smile and personality to match. God bless her family and friends.
