  6. Melodie, you were such a sweet, caring, considerate woman. So loving to all your friends and neighbors. You will be missed!
    Robert and I will be keeping your family lifted up in prayers.

  7. To Melodie’s family. Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss, 53 years old is way to young to pass, When I lost my Dad 11 years ago at the age of 74 and thought that was to young. Although I didn’t know Melodie personally, I can see how much he has contributed to your family’s happiness. I can only imagine how extremely painful it must be for you to loose someone so close to you, but the comfort that I received from God’s word was so helpful, because it gave me a hope. Jesus’ words at John 5:28+29 and Isaiah 25:8 were so comforting to me. Please read them yourself to see why .

Leave Your Condolence
