I played with melody many times. When she would sing everyone would turn and look. She has one of the best voices and could sing fantastic harmony. Some of my favorite songs she sang were Beneath Still Waters and Together Again. Her harmony made her unique. I always thought with her unique sweet voice she could make it in Nashville. Talented she was. She will be well missed. Hopefully she is now singing with the angels, she sure sang like one. I’m gonna miss you Melody.
Thank you for your kind words. She sure loved playing with you guys.
Thank you, it definitely means alot to see how loved she was and how many people she touched with her beautiful voice.
Although I didn’t know your mother personally, I do know and love you. My hearts goes out to you and your family. It will be the little things that you will remember : the quiet moments, the smiles, and the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back agsin. With heartfelt sympathy for one who lovingly touched so many with her talent and musical gifts.
Thank you so much for you kind words of strength and support! I love you much!
I wish I would have seen you more. I wish I would have said yes on Armani’s birthday when you asked us to go with you to Golden Corral. I wish you could have seen the ocean again before you passed, not after. I wish you could have made it to your birthday this weekend. I wish things didn’t have to be so hard. I wish I hadn’t have gotten so upset with you a few months ago. I wish I never spoken bad about you out of hurt and anger. I wish I hadn’t been at work and missed your call on Sunday. I wish you could have answer when I called you back. I wish you had opened my text that I sent you minutes before you passed so you could have had one last laugh. I wish you were here so I could tell you these things instead of regretting the fact that I can’t. I’m glad I saw you on Armani’s birthday. I’m glad we have a recent picture of you (you looked so pretty that day) and music to always remember you by. I’m glad Armani and I got to hug you a couple weeks ago. I’m glad we got to tell you we loved you. I’m glad that you aren’t in anymore pain, no matter how much it’s causing me. I’m glad you made an imprint on people while you were here. I’m glad that I got to apologize and pray beside you, even though you had been gone 3 days. I’m glad that one day we will meet again, but I wish it wasn’t at the expense of my loved ones mourning, as I am mourning you now. We love you.
She was always so nice to me. A truly beautiful person inside and out. She will definitely be missed. Praying for comfort and healing for your family in your time of grief.
Thank you TJ. She surely did adore you!
Happy Mother’s Day.
