Condolence: It hurt my heart to hear of the passing of my dear friend/sister Melinda. We have shared so many fun times over the years. I was always at her family’s house or she was at mine. From elementary school to Bowling Green and many years after that. May God be with her beautiful kids as they deal with this tremendous loss. May all of her family and friends find peace and just remember the awesomeness of the many memories she left us with. I love her, I always will. No more pain my sister. Just rest now in Gods loving arms.

Condolence: Aunt Melinda June,

I truly miss you. Not only were you my aunt, you were also my friend, my confidante, my part time mother. I often referred to you as my mauntie because you have been a great inspiration in my life. You believed in me when I didn't believe in myself, you held my hand when I was lost, you wiped tears when I cried and for all if this things inthank you. Thank you for loving me. I'm blessed to have had 48 years with you. Although my heart aches that you were called home, I know that your love is still shining down on me! I love you and you will never be forgotten...
