    My sweet Melody. My heart is breaking. I am so sorry. I wish I could have been there for you and your family. I’m doing my best to be there for all of them now. You are such a beautiful soul that graced my home during your growing up years. You, Amber, and Michelle were inseparable. Your children are adorable. Jayden says he likes my home. Joe and your kids are welcome anytime! Be at peace Sweet Melody. Be at peace.

    She has put on invisibility. Dear Lord, I cannot see_But this I know, although the road ascends And passes from my sight, That there will be no night; That You will take her gently by the hand And lead her on. Along the road of life that never ends, And she will find it is not death but dawn.I do not doubt that You are there as here, And You will hold her dear.Our life did not begin with birth, It is not of the earth; And this that we call death,it is no more Than the opening and closing of a door_ And in Your house how many rooms must be Beyond this one where we rest momently.Dear Lord, I thank You for the faith that frees, the love that knows it cannot lose its own;The love that , looking through the shadows, sees That That You and she and I are ever one!

    My Dearest Melody,
    Although your life here on earth was brief I shall forever cherish the memories we shared together.
    Your smile and laughter was contagious. Your spirit and soul brighten the darkest of places. You were so full of love and compassion. The love you had for your children and your family showed on your face. You were LOVE to everyone you met.
    Death does not always come with warning with time to say our farewell. Melody your death came , unannounced with no time for even a brief goodbye .
    May God hold the love ones you left behind and give them the strength to carry on. Your mother, father, brothers, husband, and your precious children , all of your aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. While we wanted you stay here on earth with us; God wanted you to come Home to be with HIM.
    You are no longer suffering with pain.
    You will be missed dearly and our hearts will ache with each passing day; until we meet again.
    I will hold you in my heart forever.
    While in heaven may you dance high above the skies, may your light shine so brightly, may you sing so loudly, may the angels know exactly who they have with them and rejoice with your presence. I love you sweetheart!
    Rest In Peace Melody!

    Melody…when we met we were inseparable. We did all kinds of crazy together. Most of the time your mom was mad at us haha. I can’t even believe you are gone. I haven’t talked to you in so long yet this feeling of emptiness is overwhelming just knowing you are no longer here on earth. Gods got his arms around you. Now. I love you!!

    Offering sincere condolences. I am so very sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. The Bible gives us a sure hope that very soon we will have the opportunity to see them again by means of the resurrection (Acts 24:15) May your family find comfort in God’s promise of an earthly paradise (Psalm 37:29) where there will be no more pain, sickness, or sorrow due to death (Rev. 21:4,5)

    Baby I love you and miss you so much. My heart is so empty without you. I lost my best friend, my soulmate and the mother of my children. Jayden and Bentley love you and miss you so much. It saddens me deeply that they have to grow up without you. I know that you will be watching over us. I made you a promise to give Jayden and Bentley the life you wanted for them. I’m going to make sure that promise is kept. I promise that Jayden and Bentley will never forget you. I will make sure that they remember who their mommy is and the wonderful person that you are. The house feels so empty without you!!! I talk to you every day and I hope you hear me. I’m lost without you. My heart belongs to you and it always will. Every time I look at Jayden and Bentley I will always think of you. Your spirit will always be in all of us. I hope your at peace now. Forever remembering you and missing you always. Your loving family, Jayden Bentley and Joe.

    My sweet, crazy Melody. We were like sisters growing up. I spent as much time at your house as I did my own. Trick-or-treating, sledding, going to Miranda’s, or just goofing off around the neighborhood. We were always laughing or causing trouble with Chase. You were my best friend. It eats me up inside that we weren’t as close after high school. I wish I had called. I wish I had tried. I thought about it a million times, but never did so we became strangers even at family gatherings. I’m sorry. I love you and will miss you always.

    Melody, This still seems like a dream to me. I can’t believe you are gone. You were a beautiful woman inside and out and a awesome mom and wife! I’m glad that god did bless you in my life for the time he did. I could talk to you about any and everything without judgement. We would sit talk and laugh for hours, not even realizing how fast the time would go by. I love you and I’m going to miss you dearly girl!!?Rest easy my friend .-Joe if there is anything I can do for you and the boys let me know.
