Melinda and I went to the Memphis zoo together when I was in town for work. We enjoyed the panda exhibit and bought panda memorabilia. We always sent each other cute panda pictures. I’m so sad thinking that she was alone when she passed. I’m just glad she’s not alone now. I know she’s happy with the man she loved! I’ll miss you my friend. With Panda Love ❤️
