I was so sad to learn of Melody's passing. I have been ill myself and just learned about her today. Otherwise , I would have been there to show my respects to a friend from the neighborhood.
My heart goes out to the family.

Words cannot begin to express my sympathy to the Weidemans.
I've known Melody for over 50 years and I don't believe you could ever find a more gracious and kinder being. Melody will be deeply missed by all who was ever blessed to have known her. May we all meet again.

I was sad to hear of the passing of Melody. I would see her at Walgreen's when I got my pictures made. She was always a caring, helpful, sweet person. She will be missed by all her customers, friends and family. May God comfort her family during this difficult time.

I reflect on the service I received from Melody when needing help with photos. She was most helpful and in a very kind and knowledgeable way. She had a very kind spirit which I appreciated. I never felt intimidated by her knowledge because she just helped in a very kind and professional way. I always felt good about an encounter with her. Sympathies to all.

As an only child, I was a bit intimidated to spend a week at my cousin's with Aunt Eunice and Uncle Paul's. Melody was so sweet and kind that I quickly became comfortable. The memories of that week stay in my mind as a week of fun and the happy chaos of a family.
I am thinking of Melody and her family with love.
