Miss Melody was a faithful friend and neighbor for twenty some years. I will miss talking with her across the fence and hearing her say, “Peacher would you mind….?” or “I fixed too much… would you and Sister Debbie like to have it?” Good neighbor that gave her heart to us!

I only knew Melody through social media, but her presence and love for God and dogs shined through. Her presence will be missed. So sorry for your loss. Prayers for you all.

My siblings and I have many sweet and even hilarious memories that include Miss Melody. One of the things I remember is that she always rescued us from nasty “wet bread” casseroles our mom would fix in her efforts to help stretch the family budget. 😂 It grieved me deeply to hear of her passing. We are praying for the family.
