Condolences to the family of Melba Moore. When I came across the name, my mind immediately went to the singer whose name was the same. May each of you find comfort in knowing that your dear loved one is asleep in death awaiting the resurrection spoken of by our lord and savior Jesus Christ. This is not a new hope, but one that propelled early followers and certainly does the same thing today. So continue to be strong and all will be okay soon. Once again sincere condolences.
