Melba when they told me that you had gone to be with our Heavenly Father our Lord, it hurt me 😢
But I know that you are in a much better place.
You were a special lady and it was my Honor getting to know you 💕
I will miss your beautiful smile that brighten my day and your teasing me when I would say hello and try to hug you and you would back away like I’ve done something wrong, you would see my face and then all of a sudden you just burst out laughing 😂 you had a good sense of humor ❤️ I will miss our times together talking about your fellow residents or anything. You will be dearly missed RIP my friend 🥺💕😘

My sassy friend. I will forever miss your teasing and joking around. Your sweet soul and smile. Your larger than life heart, your patience when trying to teach me how to crochet. Then taking it from me and unraveling it and doing it right from the beginning. I have so many precious memories of you, they will be tucked inside my heart until I see you again. Sterling Oaks won’t be the same without your laughter ringing in the halls.Fly high my friend, fly high. Love you ❤️

Melba was unforgettable. A wonderful smile. A little distrust in her glance until she knew you. I was always okay because I was Mrs Finbar. What a beautiful woman.
