While Melissa legitimately is the ultimate "actress mom" turned Viking mom/French mom/Singapore mom…she and her husband have raised their 4 kids in eight countries - with 16 addresses and five languages - she has also experienced the pain of losing her oldest son, Parker, in a tragic and unexpected accident at 18-years-of age.
Melissa attended BYU and the majority of her friends/family live in the Salt Lake area. She and her family return every summer to host an annual memorial hike to commemorate Parker.
This year the Parker Fairbourne Bradford Memorial Hike is Saturday, July 20th from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Meet at Aspen Grove Lodge Parking Lot. Hike along Stewart Falls Trail (behind Mt. Timpanogos). Hike concludes with a commemorative program and buffet.
