Not sure what to say?

Mrs. Melodia was the absolute best. She was incredibly kind and supportive, and her sense of humor was contagious. Going over to the Melodia's house in Osborne was always so much fun, and Mrs. Melodia was like a second Mom to me and countless others.

She was so caring as I would go to work while on chemotherapy. I could not have done it without her. I have a picture of the 4 dearest friends on my...
