    Melody was a true Merle Norman girl and I and my staff always loved having her come to our studios. She was a customer but also a friend. We will miss her.

    Carol and I send our deepest sympathy with the loss of your best friend ever. One thing for sure she knew what to use to make a hot water heater safe during a tornado. Love from Illinois.

    Melody was the first person I left my infant with when I went back to work. I still remember that day like it was yesterday, instant warmth and love for both Melody and Dallas. The second set of grandparents for my daughter. We thank God for the love we share and will miss her terribly. Miles separated us for a few years, but always in our hearts. And I sill can't believe she got me hooked on NASCAR!!! But never those cats!!

    Melody was a very kind and loving person who treated everyone like family. Once you became friends with Melody and Dallas, you were friends forever. I know she will be missed by all those who called her family and friend. Her strong faith gives all of us who believe in the Lord the promise that we will see her again.
