From you family in Ohio, boyhood home of her father Jack, we wish to express our sincere sympathy at your loss. Melanie was so supportive and helpful to me when my first cousin Jack (her father) died last year. I was quite distressed and Melanie provided me great comfort as his passing came as a shock to me. I could tell by her warmth and strength that she had the courage of her father and the grace of her mother. Our prayers are with her husband, her brothers, and their family.
