Melissa “Missy” Lynn (Sharp) Grimes, 43
Jefferson Hills

Melissa “Missy” Grimes, formerly Melissa Lynn Sharp, born September 15, 1969 in Pittsburgh, passed away suddenly at the age of 43 on Monday, March 25, 2013.
She is survived by her beloved husband, David Mark Grimes and loving sons Ryan and Brent Grimes. She is also survived by her mother Betty Sharp, father William Sharp and her sister Christina Sharp, along with many aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, and cousins.
Mark and Missy were to celebrate their 25th anniversary in August and have been inseparable for the past 27 years. Missy loved to visit local markets, camping, going to the movies and country music concerts. Most of all she enjoyed spending time with family and friends and spoiling her two dogs, Gizzy and Sasha.
Being the compassionate, caring person that Missy was, her final wish was to give the gift of life through organ donation. She will live in our hearts forever and will be greatly missed.
Friends recieved from 2 - 8 PM Thursday March 28th at Stephen D Slater Funeral Home, 1701 Route 51 (Large) Jefferson Hills, PA 15025. A Funeral Service will be held at the funeral home 10 AM Friday March 29th.

My condolences to you Mark and your family. Melissa was a great person. I was a friend of hers back in high school. I graduated from Baldwin in 87, the same year she graduated. I would come over to her house and we would play and go in their pool and have fun. I had slept over to. I was thinking about her too. That was unbelievable, when Lisa put it on facebook. I could hardly believe it. My mother-in-law just passed away on March 13th of the same thing. So, I know what you are going through. My prayers and sympathy to you and your family.

I never read the obituaries and I have never done anything like this before. I have no idea why Melissa's picture caught my eye nor do I really understand what is compelling me to leave this message. What can I say? All the platitudes that will be offered to all of you a thousand times, though offered in love and support, will be insufficient. Though I am struggling through the darkest time of my life, I cannot begin to imagine the depth of your grief. What I have to offer is insufficient, too, but I feel I have to try to say something. Look to art. Find Melissa's spirit in books and films and songs; true art will touch your spirit because it is offered by artists who love humanity. I won't suggest any specific works because I trust in each of those who loved Melissa to find solace in whatever speaks to their hearts. Start with what Melissa loved and let art lead you to whatever meager comforts it can. I am so sorry for your loss.

Dear Brent: I was so very saddened to hear of the loss of your Mom. I have no doubt she was very proud of you and your brother and that you will always continue to make her proud. With sincere sympathy, Jean, John and Jason Wavle
