    Gone but not forgotten. You are sorely missed. You always brought a smile to my face with your little gems that cracked me up. I could always depend on you when things went wrong with my homes. A good friend is hard to find. Till we meet again. Melody, I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you feel surrounded by much love. Sharing in your sadness.
