To Mel's family…may memories of her zest for life, heart for people and passion to help those in need, comfort you at this time. I had the honour of working with Mel at United Way. She was adored by all who knew her and I feel incredibly privileged to have spent time with her both inside and out of work. She touched my heart like no other. Her spirit will live on in me as I try to emulate some of her incredible qualities.
