A letter from Houston Dash forward Melissa Henderson

With a heavy, yet peaceful heart, I close a chapter of my life that has brought me so much joy these last 23 years. To my teammates and coaches, thank you. Thank you for blessing me with some of the most incredible memories that I’ll truly cherish forever.

To all the fans who in my eyes became friends and that I will hold a special place in my heart and I hope to stay connected with you all!

To the Dash/Dynamo organization, thank you. Thank you to everyone behind the scenes that make our dream a reality. Your work and long hours don’t go unnoticed and I can’t even begin to express my gratitude to each of you.

Lastly, to my family and friends, thank you. You have been a part of Gods journey for me from the beginning. Your love, support and encouragement have become my backbone throughout my career. But, most importantly, thank you Jesus. Thank you for allowing me to share your word and use your platform not to gain but to give. As I leave this game you blessed me with the ability to play, I have a tremendous amount of peace. With you as my light, I will not be led astray.

“Your word is a lamp to guide me and a light for my path.” – Psalm 119:105

Yours truly,
