  1. CandleImageShe was one of my favorite sister in law. She was always so sweet and nice. I am glad that her brother and i got to spend some time with her last summer. She will be missed.

  2. CandleImageWe loved Mel so very much. She was a second mother to us girls and we will always remember how much she meant to us. She made the most beautiful floral arrangements for our weddings and our nephews memorial service. She joined us for family events, dinners and birthdays throughout the years. She loved to talk about her grandsons Kaleb and Kage, she would tell us how much she loved them and how proud she was of the two of them. She truly was an amazing women to have in our lives and the sweet memories we made with her will never be forgotten. We will miss her so very much like so many others.

  3. CandleImageMel was a kind hearted, funny, loving, and talented woman. Her and her amazing floral talents were apart of many of our family memories and she is sincerely loved and missed. She would always talk about her grandchildren every chance she was given because she was so proud of her family. We are praying for everyone and sending you uplifting love during your time of grief. Many Blessings and peace in knowing how loved she was and will continue to be. She will always be alive in our hearts.

  5. CandleImageJason I’m so sorry about your Mom passing. I’m praying that God wraps his arms around you and your family and gives you peace during this difficult time.

  6. CandleImageMel was a beautiful soul and a rare find in a friend…a true gem!! Mel was my florist for many years and that is how we met. She was an amazing floral designer and in my opinion the absolute best!! We became lifelong friends and talked often by phone. She made my bridal bouquet and helped decorate for my wedding. She was pure perfection and attentive to detail in every aspect of floral design and decorating. She would help me decorate my Christmas tree. We shopped at Hobby Lobby, enjoyed a dinner out and then decorated the tree until the wee hours, mostly from talking too much. She often spoke fondly of her son Jason and her grandsons Kaleb and Kage, her greatest blessings no doubt. She was so proud of each of you. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy and know that she will be greatly missed by many including me. May sweet memories and the love of friends and family comfort you and may Gods peace and strength be with you now and in the harder days ahead. Keep shining his light and hers…you boys are her greatest legacy.
