We will always miss you. We were so glad that you were blessed with a man who was raised in the Scriptures. What blessings Jehovah, through his son Jesus Christ, heaped upon you, when you met your husband-to-be, Oscar Rivera. Jehovah extended his love for the two of you, with the birth and rearing of your two children, Amy and Timothy, who likewise, dedicated their lives to Jehovah. I am blessed to have you, always, as an example and everlasting encouragement in how you lived your life, according to Jehovah's words, as written in the Holy Scriptures.

With loving memory, I cherish and will recall, quite often, our laughter and conversations during your visits to New Haven and our visits to New York.

We hope to see you again. I miss you and love you, always.
Your brother, George.

My deepest condolences to the Rivera, Curry, and Curtis family. Melody was a beautiful out spoken knowledgeable gal with lots of energized information about the world. Melody had the biggest fun laugh on the East Coast. She was a faithful servant to Jehovah and so loved her family. Our mothers were sisters, we were first cousins-and we had many loving family get togethers growing up. Good bye my dear cousin. Your light will forever sparkle in my heart. RIP
