Melissa “Missy” Lynn Nall Cervantes

cervantesMelissa “Missy” Lynn Nall Cervantes
Died 19 September 2016 in La Marque, Texas, after much too brief a life with her loving family and friends. Born 27 July 1982 in Texas City, Texas. Survived by her two beautiful and adoring children, Mateo Kai and Aleah Jade; her step-son, Ivan Cervantes; her devoted parents, Michael and Alice Nall; her caring brothers, Michael (Sandra) and Matthew (Pha Le); her beloved dog, Chico; and her grandmother, Barbara Bunge, and husband John. She will be dearly missed by her many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Born into a close family with significant ties to Galveston County, Melissa graduated from La Marque High School in 2000; and immediately pursued her passion as a personal stylist. She obtained her license, and in time became a Master Stylist at Hair Revolution in Houston, Texas. Melissa immersed herself in her career, where she enjoyed spending time with her co-workers and clients, who frequently raved about Melissa’s skills. She was known to be a great listener, and always looked for the positive in everyone and everything.
Melissa was a devoted mother, who loved spending time with her two children, and cherished seeing them learn, grow, and develop each day. She enjoyed traveling to Spain, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, and Jamaica – as well as her more recent trips, to Las Vegas, Austin, and New Orleans. Spending time with her family and friends, Melissa was always ready to explore new places and try new experiences. She found inspiration in the words of Bob Marley, which she shared with others – “Live the life you love. Love the life you live.”
A Memorial Service is to be held at 4:00 pm on Saturday, 24 September 2016, at Crowder Funeral Home, 851 F.M. 517 W. and Hwy. 646, Dickinson, Texas 77539. Tel. (281) 337-1515.

  3. Rest in peace, beautiful spirit. Keeping your family in my prayers.

  4. I’ve known you since my Visible Changes years and who I watched grow into an amazing woman, hairdresser, and loving mother tragically and unexpectedly died a couple of days ago. I followed her everywhere since Visible Changes all the way to Hair Revolution until this day. It is so hard to wrap my head around the fact that she was just here one day and then gone the next. Especially such a young, healthy, beautiful, and gentle soul! I will always remember you Melissa and your big bright smile and giggles. I pray for your sweet babies. They have a special Angel in Heaven to watch over them their whole lives.

  14. Don’t be troubled. You trust God, now trust in me. There are many rooms in my Father’s home, and I am going to prepare a place for you. If this were not so, I would tell you plainly. When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know where I am going and how to get there. John 14:1-4

    May your family and friends find comfort and peace through our Lord and Savior in knowing that you are in your specially prepared room in the Lord’s house; living with Him and His chosen people. We will see you again. God bless you.

  16. A Prayer,

    In my last moment, and just before I had taken my last earthly breath, God sent an angle who placed a drop of oil on my forehead and it is in this moment my body rolled into the arms of my creator, as like a child who knows the kindness and security of a parent, knowing no pain, no fear, but only peace and love, my earthly body fell asleep; but it’s in this moment my anointed body becomes restored and I awake seated at Gods heavenly table, forever. Godspeed Melissa.

    “Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.”
    Gospel of St. Matthew c5v8

  17. Mom,

    I was too young to realize that you were gone and I wasn’t going to see you forever so I have a bunch of pictures in my room to remember you. I miss you mom I hope you have a good time in heaven.

    Love Aleah.

    Aleah Jade Cervantes
