~Class of '97~

Graduation Day means many things

To all who gather far and near,

For most... a very joyous time

For my family... it brings a tear.


To the Class of '97

We wish the best for you,

To each a successful future

In whatever you choose to do.


Follow your dreams

Pursue your careers,

Always hold memories

Of North Penn ever near.


And as you reflect

On events of the past,

Remember the girl

Whose dreams didn't last.


Remember Melissa

Each time you pray,

And know that her spirit

Is with you today.


Our family is so very proud

Of the Class of '97,

Including our beloved Melissa

As she watches us from Heaven.

(Melissa's classmates asked me to

write a poem for their yearbook.

They dedicated 2 pages in her memory,

with pictures and thoughts of her...

along with my poem.

At Graduation, the girls carried

flowers, which they placed in vases at

either end of the stage. Her poem was

read by Viki Copp, while the class

stood with bowed heads. The flowers were

later placed at her gravesite.

This group will always have my sincere

gratitude for making Melissa a part of

their "special day".
