Melisa Richardson


When the theatre lights dim and anticipating eyes are transfixed on the screen, or a well-told story results in gales of laughter at a family get-together, the wonderful memories Melisa created with family and friends will echo once more in the hearts and minds of all those who loved her.



To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged, Melisa’s family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the



Cape May County Animal Shelter

As a public service, the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is dedicated to the humane and ethical treatment of animals within its borders and jurisdiction. Situated within both a tourist and retirement destination, the shelter has its own unique challenges and donations are greatly appreciated to help bolster its spay/neuter and animal shelter trust fund - both of which enable animals to receive life saving medical procedures and medications.
