Not sure what to say?

Melba and I always had a lot to talk about. She was very devoted to her family and made efforts to make them comfortable at all times. She was courageous in her long illness.
I always felt her as a part of my family and shared many hours with her. I will miss her very much as I also miss her sister Marie. God bless her in her transition.
Dr. Howie Delane

Being a longtime resident of Oakland, I never had the pleasure of knowing Melba however, our heavenly father knows us all and our hope should be to be in his memory. Then we will all live without sickness, death and all the things that this world has that causes us pain. May you all have peace.
