Earlier this week our good friend, Melissa (aka Mouse) passed away. Melissa was one of those people who lit up everything around her. Her kind, caring nature and bright smile were just a few of the amazing qualities Melissa carried. I first met Melissa back in 2003 during the CMWC in Seattle. I needed a place to stay and she and the rest of the U-lock Mob took care of me and offered up some floor space. In 2010, the rest COG was fortunate to have met and stayed with her while visiting LA for issue number 8. She touched the hearts and did so much for the worldwide messenger community. Our hearts go out to Douglas, Ozzie, her family and friends. Ride in peace Melissa.
There will be a memorial ride tonight in LA and other major cites including NYC and Boston in her honor. More info at DTLA.
