MY DEEPEST DEEPEST CONDOLENCES FOR THE LOSS OF A WONDERFUL PERSON. I REMEMBER HER MOST FROM THE TIME SHE WAS A STAUNCH ADVOCATE FOR HELPING INDIVIDUALS LEARN ABOUT ATTENTION DEFICIT(LADD)ORGANIZATION SHE LAUNCHED NUMBER OF YEARS AGO. SHE WAS VERY DEDICATED,VIBRANT,ARTICULATE,AND POISED THROUGHOUT THESE MEETING THAT BROUGHT PEOPLE FROM ALL FACETS OF SOCIETY. I FOUND HER SENSE OF HUMOR REFRESHING AND GOOD NATURED. SHE HELPED COUNTLESS NUMBER OF PEOPLE TO BE INFORMED ABOUT THE LATEST CUTTING EDGE INFORMATION ON ATTENTION DEFICIT ISSUES. SHE WAS PRACTICAL AND USED A LOT OF COMMON SENSE. SHE STRIVED TO BETTER HERSELF THROUGH INVESTIGATION,READING,QUESTIONS, AND RESEARCH. TIME HAS FLOWN, I BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN OVER A DECADE SINCE I LAST SAW HER,HOWEVER,I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HER BEAUTIFUL RADIANT SMILE. I HOPE SHE FINDS SOLACE AND COMFORT IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. GOD BLESS TO MELODY AND HER LOVED ONES.

When we worshiped with Melody, Joel, and Danielle, there was also a lady named Melanie. I used to get their names mixed up, and Melody was always so sweet and gracious, and would laugh with me! I was thinking of that when I posted our condolence message to Joel and Danielle. I can picture her smiling now - and saying, "she did it again!!!"
