Our prayers are with Mellisa, family, friends and fellow Deputies.

OT: I would like to take the editor of the Mt Democrat out back and smack some sense into him. Where is the class now days? Nice Caption on the front page. What an ass.

She was a very nice person and showed herself to have much more class than the cowards Yaws and Murphy.She was an asset to El Dorado County and will be missed.

Melissa, you motivated me in so many ways as a woman in law enforcement. Words do not express how this world will be without you. You are a woman of integrity, dignity, and respect. You were the best.

Those of us who have not been through what Melissa, John Yaws and Greg Murphy went through can not even begin to understand. Each of us handles grief, stress and anger differently. Some turn their anger outwards and try to find resolution in retribution. Some turn inwards and blame themselves. We should not judge. We should just be there for these people in pain and do whatever we can to ensure they get the help they need so that they can make peace with the situation and go on with their lives. Greg and John, do whatever you need to do to cope. I support you, 100 percent. Melissa, I'm sorry none of us were able to communicate to you whaterver it was that you needed to hear that would have helped you better deal with your pain. But we won't give up. Understood we did our best, and we will pay tribute to you by forgiving ourselves, going on with our lives and continue to try to do better to help others.

I have lost 5 loved ones, very close to me, in just this past year. Melissa makes it 6.
I grew up with and was close with Melissa and a lot of people in this town, like my friend Gina. Not just high school, middle school and elementary as well. That's 15 plus years of knowing someone.
The gossip can stop now. How YOU all feel about those people from Melissa's life is how YOU feel. It does not, nor will it ever, reflect how she feels about them. She's at peace now, so shouldn't all of you be? Seems to me your enjoying the stir up of death and I say "booooo", It's not very classy OR mature of you.
