Melanie and Jackie's family, Sincere sympathy to you all. I remember meeting you during college and my mom (Helen Gunderson) remembering she went to school with your Mom. Blessed be her memory!

Dear Mel, Marsha, Lisa and families
So many memories rush into my mind when I even hear your mom's name. I remember the look on her face when Mel and I walked into her house with fresh tar from the hot summer road on our shoes to her whole hearted laugh when we would sit down with her and tell her stories from school. Then as an adult and would visit her in AZ or when she would seek me out at church when I returned home for a visit. At all of my families funerals she was one of the last ones to leave and one of the first ones to offer a hug and kind word. You are all very special to me. My deepest sympathies. Carla Rye Bichler
