Our Missy Cat enjoyed serving and helping all the disadvantage people in the local community. She had a huge heart, captivating smile, made friends without judgment and was the a pitta me of the salt of the earth. Missy was very talented at all she put her mind to and was our very own little Betty Crocker. She could make a meal out of anything. Her cheesecakes were phenomenal and famous throughout our family.
Missy was miracle mother, at the age of 25 years old she was told that she could not bear children. After prayer and faith, her and her life partner were blessed with two children J.D. and Javi. We love our little blessings! Missy was a selfless mother, loving daughter, sister, aunt and life partner. She always had a smile and a hug for everyone. Missy led with her big heart and strive to see the absolute best in everyone. Our Missy cat has left behind a great legacy and will be missed by all and will never be forgotten. We love you Missy!
