I was so sorry to hear of Melanie’s passing. She was always so kind to me in high school, which were difficult times for me. I will always remember her bubbly personality, and her unconditional love. Thank you so much, Melanie. You made what was a very trying time for me a bit more tolerable and I will always be grateful to you for that. ♥️ Rest In Peace, Angel.

Dear Brent and family
I am so sad to hear of your Mom’s passing. Melanie had a great smile and a heart as big as the whole outdoors! I loved our “ girl talks”. She was a very kind person who loved her family very fiercely. You now have a guardian angel that will watch over all of you forever. My heart and my prayers are with all of you.
