Wow, all through and after high school, Melanie kept on serving others and pushing through her own difficult health limitations to do so. What a trooper! What a good and caring person! Sandi

I knew Mel from kindergarten to graduation and she was one of the sweetiest and most caring persons I have ever known.  Rest in peace and God's blessings.
