From Cog Magazine:
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
