We got these coins as a gift from our aunt or Melissa’s (my mom) sister (see other story). We were going through my brother’s stuff when we found this coin, he was going to trash it until I told him I’ll take it, to give to someone else. That’s my butterfly coin story.
Melissa Leigh Chadwick (Scheer) was a mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, sister-in-law, cousin, teacher, and friend. Sadly, she was diagnosed with cancer in October of 2013. Even though she was suffering with this terrible disease, she was always wearing her big, beautiful smile on her face. She touched the lives of many through her kindness and compassion. She was in own for saying “Be kind or Rewind!” We continue to say this too. She loved her family deeply and had a passion for teaching. She is the strongest person we know. She battled her cancer with strength and grace. She offered up all her suffering to Jesus. She passed away on May 5, 2014. In honor of the most amazing woman we know, we try to show kindness to everyone just like she did. Please continue to pass this butterfly coin with an act of kindness in honor of Melissa. I know this would make her smile! God bless!
Love, Chadwick-Scheer-Hartje Families -2019
