To Melody's family, Bob and I are so surprised and sorry to hear of Melody passing. We had many get times and laughs with Melody and Danny. Not only was Mel a lot of fun but she was always willing to help. One memory I have is of Melody helping people going on job interviews to find clothing from clothes she helped gather. So, glad we had the chance to share some time too gather.

Mel:It was an honor to know such an amazing person. You will be missed by so many of your friends. We have many memories of you and Danny doing things together. The cattle drive,the Halloween party where you dressed as a witch and told ghost stories to the little ones, and the all night bond fire,partying and riding horses all night, and the many times we spent together at the Eagles. You will be missed by so many.

Melody, It was so great to have got to know you over the past year. You are such a fun loving beautiful lady that I can say I was proud to call you my friend. Keep laughing and dancing that is how I will always remember you.

Melody, my heart is breaking but I know you are in s better place. We spent some wonderful years together at Butler Techsnd I know you made it a fantastic experience for all who knew you, both students and staff alike. I still remember the time you filled my office with at least a hundred balloons on my big birthday. You were such a treasure. God has a wonderful lady with him today.
