    Don’t cry for me for I am gone,
    It’s just my body but my soul lives on.

    Memories I’ll keep in my heart forever,
    Of the short precious time we were together.

    You are loved Mel and will be missed dearly. Forever and always.

    Debbi, you were the first friend I made on Argentine Drive. I remember when your dad would come home from driving and we have to be quiet when he was sleeping. When he wasn’t sleeping he was jamming to Waylon and Willie! 🥰
    Praying great memories will comfort you and keep you smiling! Love you! 💜🙏🏼
