I'm deeply saddened to hear of Mel's passing. During our time at United Way, I was honoured to work closely with Mel on many events. Her dedication to helping others through such projects such as the Great Human Race was so admirable. As I fondly remember her, I recall one of her greatest qualities - the ability to put smiles on the faces of her co-workers with that infectious laugh and bubbly personality. To the family, many mourn with you in the loss of your beloved Melanie.......yet we also honour the life that was lived so will. Gentle hugs and tender thoughts are sent to the family.
