Melinda and I started at pgande together in the early 1980’s. We became travel buddies and took multiple trips together. We traveled to Italy for 3 weeks in 1985. Melinda had a bi-level haircut. Short on one side long on the other. The Italian men were crazy for her. They followed us everywhere. At one point I grabbed Melinda and turned her around and said to the Italian young man following us, “Here take her “ Melinda was speechless but then the guy ran off. Melinda laughed it off. We had many more trips together and lots of great stories. Melinda was a great traveling companion. I will miss her. My daughter is traveling to Italy this summer. My daughter pointed out she is the same age as Melinda and I when we traveled to Italy. Wish I could share this with Melinda ,

Melinda and I worked together for a short time, and became instant friends. Ten years ago she invited me to go with her to her home in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. She wanted me to experience the craziness of Mardi Gras and show me why she loved her home in Mississippi. The week we spent there was one of the best times I've ever had. I met her aunt and her cousin who live there full time, and they were such gracious hosts. They instantly made me feel welcome, and I looked forward to the day I could bring my husband there so he could experience the same thing.
The last time I saw Melinda was in February, when she was helping me plan my trip with my husband to finally go to Mississippi. She made me laugh because she had gotten AAA books and maps, and she had so many things paper clipped of what we should see, the book was twice its size. The best part was she was planning on going to her house at the same time so we could spend time together while we were there. I was so disappointed when she let me know just before we left, she wasn't able to make it because she was in the hospital. I was so disappointed, but when we arrived, we had a wonderful time. Everything she suggested turned out to be great. I was so looking forward to telling her all about it when we returned from our trip. Sadly, I learned of her passing the last day we were in Ocean Springs. I was so stunned with grief. We went to her house, and I spent some time talking to her in her yard and telling her how grateful I was to call her my friend. Rest well, my friend.
