I’m saddened to hear of Melanie’s passing. She was one of my first childhood friends and I have so many memories of slumber parties, sleeping in the camper in the driveway, playing with Barbie’s, getting attacked by the family cat and so many more. May she rest in peace. Praying for strength and peace for her family at this most difficult time.


I attended school with Melanie and she was usually right next to me in line (including when we graduated from South in 97). I will always remember her smile and infectious laugh. I am sorry she is gone and has left kids behind, but I'm happy she is free of pain.

Sandy Meyer
