Melanie and I met our sophomore year in high school...44 years ago...I have many good memories of her but one of my favorite was back in high school when we walked in the rain to her piano lesson...Melanie really didn't like playing the piano back then!! Another is when I helped her babysit for her brother one night...Fred had a twin size waterbed and we all had a blast jumping on it!! She was a good, sweet, kind person who dearly loved all of her family!! will miss her always but am thankful she is healthy again and can walk again...until that day comes ...see ya later MEP...much love from NKM we had a silly thing way back when of referring to each other by our enitials...

May she rest. We had so many childhood times together. I fondly remember how happy she always was. A person who always made others feel loved and welcomed. She left us too soon but she left us with many fond memories. Peace.

I've been exchanging e-mails for a long time with Ms Melly Lou and will miss her. We also swapped birthday cards as our birthdays were 2 days apart. She had a good heart and loved her family very much. Rest in peace, cousin.

Dear Chris, Please accept my sincere sympathy for the loss of your dear Mother. I know she is watching over you from heaven. Melanie and I became friends ten years ago while playing an online game called Word Riot. We also played Scrabble together every Sunday. I loved Melly and will miss chatting with her. God Bless You.

I only know Melly from game playing on the internet, but everyone loved her. Very sweet, adored her son, and loved interacting with friends. We miss you already, Mel.
