I learned about Melodi's death yesterday. I was a classmate of Melodi's and I was very upset upon hearing the terrible news. I had called my classmate because my best friend, Marie Becker Firl from Mercy, died on Sunday after a rather brief battle of cancer, after losing her husband, 10 months prior.
I was so saddened when this classmate told me about Melodi. She was always a sweetheart and so nice. I was close friends with Nancy Lawson when they competed to the homecoming queen titles. They were all so classy and gracious with their grace and beauty, including Renee Broussard.
My thoughts and wishes are with you! I've never forgotten Melodi in any respect, as far as her kind spirit, even as a teenager.
