I was one of Mel's online buddies like Laura over several years. We shared lots of laughs, ups and downs, pics and chats. Mel had a lovely sense of humour. Although we never met in person, me living in Cyprus, that did not take anything away from our relationship and I always felt her warmth and love, and her caring spirit. RIP Mel. Miss you and thank you for those shared memories. With my love.

Melanie was a dear friend that I've known thru an online group of buddies who shared pictures and thoughts with each other. She loved nature and enjoyed sitting on her balcony with a coffee, taking photos at times of visitors like the turkey moms and their chicks.
We all had a bit of mutual aid society, even if it was only to be a cyber-shoulder to lean on.
We shared many laughs and she will be sorely missed!
