I have such great & happy memories of us on spring break. But my favorite memory is when you, me, Carmen, Tracy & Jennifer got stuck in the spinning tunnel of the funhouse at the tva&I fair out freshman year. You will be missed

Melanie was such a kind and giving soul. Her pleasant nature was alway present and uplifting. Throughout the years of seeing her with my sister, Carmen, she was always a joy to be around and we always had so much fun! She was always so consistent and strong for others too. I think she is a lesson to us all to stand for the things we love. I know the memories of her and those wonderful qualities will carry on in my life and in every life she touched! I have no doubts that she is in a much better place now surrounded by her family and friends who have went before.
I give my prayers for strength and comfort for her mother, nephew and all her friends as they struggle through their grief. May we all be as strong and appreciative of life as she was.

I worked with Melanie from 2010 to 2015 at LMC. She was a fabulous nurse and so much fun to work with. She never said no to anything I asked her to do and was always willing to help at other offices, when needed. In addition to being a co-worker, she was a wonderful friend. She loved her family, especially Michael, and was always bragging about his accomplishments. She was a proud Momma, for sure. I will miss you so much, “Felony Melanie”. Your smile could light up a room and your loving, caring personality will be greatly missed by so many people. May you rest in peace with your dad and Karen and may God hold you gently in his arms. You are loved and will be missed
❤️❤️❤️🙏🙏🙏❤️❤️❤️
