Mel has always been a part of my family memories. Ill have to think on the stories but there are a few worth sharing. The one thing I do remember from when Pam and I were young girls is that Mel would get so angry with us if we went into her room at home and God forbid we touched or used anything. She was pretty good at letting us know about it. Makes me smile thinking about it. Wasnt funny back then. To be honest it was guilt by association . You are correct in that she was a caring person and do what ever she could for you. At times not in her best interest but that was just her. She has always loved everyone one in our family. Except if you mess her stuff. As hard it is right now, I try to make loved ones smile and remember the good times. Love yall, you have my support and love.
By the way, Im sorry if Ive added ten or so of the same photo but I never saw it was accepted so I kept trying. Everyone knows me, if not aggravating Im at least consistent
