Dear Donna and Dane,
Jeremy and I have so many great memories of Mom Mom, she will be forever in our hearts.
It saddens me that she is no longer with us and she will be greatly missed. She fought long and hard to stay with her family, and I know she is in heaven continuing her watch over all that loved her.
She is resting in peace, and I know that she is singing and dancing with Bill and the angels!
Love always,
Norine & Jeremy

My condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Melzer. The gallery of photos is a wonderful reminder of the good times you shared with her. Job 33:25 talks about the power God has to return people to their "youthful vigor" so those photos can also serve as a reminder of what Mrs. Melzer will look like again when God takes action in the near future. I hope you can find comfort in reflecting on these thoughts.
