She is missed.

    you probably do not remember me but I graduated with Melissa from Bartram and we were good friends. I lost touch with Melissa a long time ago….I live in CO and we just never ran into each other. I tried to reach out a few years ago when she was living in Jackson. She was dear friend and I am so sorry for your loss!! I am sending your family peace and love! I am so sorry!!!

  • Amy L. Mullis Dryden Posted September 12, 2019 6:57 am

    My heart goes out to the Mock family, and friends. Melissa was a special person, with so much laughter and love. She was so nice to me when I transferred from Robert E. Lee Sr. HS to Bartram my senior year, being a good friend, inviting me home to Amelia Island with her. I will never forget her kindness, and the fun times and sweet memories. I was just thinking about her a couple days ago, and how she became my friend at such an awkward, pivotal point in life, when kindness was such a gift. May peace and happy memories be with you through this time and always. Much love, Amy L. Mullis Dryden, c/o ’88 Bartram….God Bless.
