Dear Randy, Ronnie, Jenny and family:

There are no words to describe the impact of Melva's life on mine and the group known as "The Sewing Club" in Wellsburg, WV. Her faith in God and her influence for our spiritual well being will reverberate throughout eternity.

She became my dearest friend, always available to listen, counsel, and encourage. Never was she too busy to take my phone call. After she moved to Virginia Beach, I still visited her and Bill. Arriving at their house felt like "coming home" to me. Even when she was 80, she still drove home to WV to see her friends, family, and "her girls" as she called the former sewing club.

Only eternity will tell about the lives Melva touched with her hospitality and the Love of God, which splashed over on everyone she met.

Attending her funeral has changed me, as I've contemplated her life, her influence, her single minded focus on Jesus. As I listened to others speak at her funeral, I realized they felt the same as I do, each of us experienced her loving care in a special way, just for us. But there was always enough for everybody.

I am comforted with the knowledge that she is free from her worn out body and now rejoicing in the presence of the Lord. I can't wait to see her again, well and completely whole, where time is no longer "the boss of us." Hallelujah!
