Awe Melanie! I still remember when you would do my hair for school when I was small. You had to put up with sharing a room with me, your messy little sister. So long ago!
I am so sorry that you had such hard struggles in this life. You still put up quite a fight. I am thankful that your last days, although filled with pain, were also filled with love. Your family will miss you! May you have the peace Christ gives. Love Christy

I knew Melonie for a short time. But what I know about Melanie is that she was a mother and grandmother. She was the mother of my eldest daughters partner Tayme. I know Tayme loved her mother very much. Melanie loved her daughter and granddaughter dearly. Although we were all experiencing challenges in our life when I got to know Melonie. She was a soft woman with a big heart. She gave and helped as much as she could. Even if she put on a mean face I new she wasn't. I loved Melanie for being there as good as she new how if we needed her. God bless her family and my prayers and condolences are with them.
So sorry for your loss to the family. Love you
Rachel Babcocks mother Brooke Bronson.

I will always remember the fun times we had as cousins born weeks apart :) We wrote each other letters between visits. Your giggles and laugh were so contagious and still make me smile.
I saw you surrounded by angels in the hospital while sending you Reiki. It was very comforting to know how loved and protected you are beyond this life we see.
It's been a long time since I got to spend time with you, but please know I thought of you often and always hoped things would get better for you. I will love you always and am sending love, hugs, and healing to Jayme, Tayme, Trinity, Lynn, Steve, Christy, Rick, nieces, nephews, and friends who love you.
