Melanie could cook like nobody’s business. She kept us fed at camp while I was there. She was a special lady. Thinking of you and your family Brandon during this difficult time.

I still can’t grasp this. Girl we used to have soo much fun when you were younger. I remember how crazy you were about Brandon & remember when Sarah was born. We used to go to town together & you also used to babysit my kids. We all gonna miss you with that pretty smile of yours. You had such a good heart. I heard about you coming to the hospital everyday when I was on the vent. You always cared about everybody else’s life cause you are soo special in every way. I’m sure gonna miss you girl but I know ur still smiling. I’m praying for all of y’all. I love y’all!!

I graduated high school with Melanie and saw her several times years later when I worked at the hospital. She was always happy, smiling, joking, asking how I and my boys were doing. Always a positive outlook. So I am shocked and quite inspired on hearing of her passing. Prayers to the family as you deal with your loss.

I remember the first day u climbed on the school bus going to JCS. You were a quiet young girl. Lord knows that change as life rolled a long. Lol. Then years later we meet again while working at Walmart. Each and everytime I saw you there was always a smile on your face. You were a very kind and loving person, a Devoted friend, wife, mother and much more. You will be missed.

Mel,
You wasn't suppose to go yet. We weren't ready for this. Never would have been. All i know is my life has been better knowing you. Thirty-five years of friendship. We went many different paths but always picked up where we left off. You were a one of a kind lady. Your great big love of life ,family and friends will definitely leave a mark on us all. I'll remember that beautiful smile and tight embrace you always greeted me and everyone with. I'll see you again someday my friend. I love you always...

It's with a heavy heart that I send my deepest condolences and prayers to the family for the tremendous loss of your loved one. Melanie was a gentle soul, memorable classmate and dear friend, who was blessed with the enormous capacity to brighten lives around her. Never one to outwardly display the challenges of life, she always maintained a frothy spirit and exuded love to those she encountered.
