  1. John, Meredith, Ed, and Tiff- I’m so so sorry for your loss. Words can’t describe the pain I feel right now knowing Melanie is gone. She was a sweet, stern, silly, loving lady that will live in all of our hearts forever. Sending love, prayers and hugs to all of you during this difficult time.

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. Although I haven’t seen your mom in years, we kept in touch via facebook. She was my “roomie” and sorority sister at ONU. We often shared memories of the crazy times we had. She was always a very sweet person, kind to everyone. I loved her smile and her laugh. The world was a better place because she was in it.
