Melissa Toh’s friends are shocked and very sad; Maryanne expressed her feeling on her blog,
My friend, Melissa Toh, took her life early on Wednesday morning. Leaving everyone shocked and grieving. I love her drawings, and I read her blog sometimes. I love her poems, and I liked the way she expresses herself not only through words but also through her drawings. Most people might term my relationship with her more of an acquaintance than a friend, but no. In my heart, Melissa was a friend.
